I am a 44 year old male who is slightly confused and concerned with symptoms that have only occurred since being diagnosed 8-9months ago.
Last year I went for a regular health check as I changed gp's, I had no obvious symptoms relating to any illness that I was aware of.
The gp tested for thyroid as I had informed him that my mother had suffered with hypothyroidism.
The doctor contacted me a few days later and said I had an under active thyroid and was to take 100mcg levo which was fine until a few months after where I started having anxiety issues, tingling fingers, palpitations all which seemed to be worse in the morning.
I explained this to another doctor after being told my results were fine ( the within range kind ) and she said reduce to 75 as the 100 may have been a shock.
I now take 75 at night which at first helped with the symptoms but they're back again.
I am planning on having a full blood test as suggested in many threads to try and ascertain exactly what's going on.
My last thyroid results are below
Serum free T4 19.8 ( 10.0-19.8 )
TSH 2.49 ( 0.35-5.5 )
Any advice would be appreciated from you very kind people.
