Had a boarder line underactive Thydroid for about 4 years but never took any medication for it despite the gentle prompting from my doctor. We moved house and registered with a new doctor who looked at my TSH values and asked why wasn't I taking something for the underactive Thydroid I told him I thought I was fine, he then went through the symptoms of Hypothyroidism and the fatigue and feeling cold certainly hit home, I had simply put the symptoms down to getting older.
To cut the story short I was prescribed 25mg of Levothyroxine and after a week\ten days I felt really good. about 6 weeks ago I felt the fatigue and feeling cold symptoms coming back. I was due a blood test last week and my results show a TSH value which has risen from 6.3 to 9.8. The doctor rang me up and has now put me on 50mcg of Levothyroxine!!!!!!!
I am a little worried as for 4 years my TSH values were raised but stable, as soon as I take the medication the TSH values go up rather than down. Also my throat feels as though someone has their fingers pressing at the base of my throat.
Anyone has a similar experience
