I got diagnosed with Hypo and hashis when trying to get pregnant for 2 years.
Despite having my thyroid checked (and my TSH level being over 5) - the GP didn't mention this could be a problem so i only found out when I went for an IVF consultation and they said i needed to get it down to 2.5 or lower.
At that point my TSH was 5.27 and I went on 25mcg of levo for 6 weeks. My TSH then came down to 3.8 so they increased me to 50mcg and my TSH went back up to 4.4. they then suggested 75mcg and after 2 weeks of taking this i felt awful - exhausted, dry skin, weight gain, felt really blue etc. My doctor couldn't explain why this had happened and told me to go back to 50mcg and to see an Endo.
The endo tested my T3 (which my GP wouldn't do) and it was 3.7 with my T4 at 15.4 and my TSH at 3.19 - does this seem ok?
I asked him to prescribe me T3 as i'd read good things about it when people react badly to levo, which reluctantly he did so I am now taking 50mcg of Levo and 10mcg of Lyro.
I've only been on this for about 2 weeks and at some points i feel noticeably more alert and other time noticeably more tired!
Does anyone think I should be doing something else or had a similar situation?
Thanks in advance!
