Dear all, I'm confused what to do next.
I was on Levo 62 mg back in September. My thyroid profile was ....tsh 2.68 ( 0.27-4.2),free t4. 17.2 (12-22), free t3 3.6 ( 4-6.8). I felt ill, hot flushes or cold, pain in my ankle, and feet, hair loss and dry skin. I also have ectopic heartbeat which is just within the range (not sure what the range is). A heart scan showed a slightly weak valve that causes a minor back blood flow. I was told to come back for a scan in two years time and I could go on beta blockers if I wish. The cardio didn't think it was critical at this stage.
I decided to see a private endo who felt problem was thyroid related and gave me t3 priscription. I started on t3 (Tiromel) on 6th of October. I was told to take 75 mcg of t3/ day (split into half ) twice a day on top of existing 62 mg of Levo. My blood test on 26 the of October. I have only taken half of the recommended t3 so far (half a tablet of 75mcg t3 which I take in the morning) . I felt twice may be too much especially looking at my tsh I think it was a wise decision?
tsh 0.04, free t4 19, free t3 5.8 on the same window of specification as above. I feel severe hot flushes and sweat break just above my cheats...it's horrible feeling or I feel cold. My hands and feet are always cold. My go is concerned about the tsh level. My vid d is 86, vit b 12 is 2000 ( been taking Swanson methylcobalmine supp since third week of September (prior to supplement it was 220). I have stop taking b 12 now.serum folate is 16.5 (3.9- > 20). Ferritin very high 583(13-15). I still feel unwell and I don't know what to do. I am on a waiting list to see an endo on NHS. Not sure how that's going to be. My GP is not helpful and very concerned abt my low tsh. Please help as I feel very confused. I can't afford the private endo...too expensive and I really wanna feel beta. I'm not sure if my symptoms are hypo or hyper on t3. The only difference on t3 is my ankle pain had reduced quite a bit but still have sore feet.
