Hi, so I am having a really dodgy start on levothyroxine. I have been on 25mg for 4 days and have had bad 'hyper' symptoms. My blood pressure shot through the roof and I had really bad palpitations, agitation, upset stomach and nausea. The Dr told me to stop treatment as I am being over treated. She suggests trying 12.5mg once feeling better to see if I tolerate that.
She suggested that I may not be hypo after all. She then told me that my iron stores were low a while back. This is after being repeatedly told 'everything is fine' I don't know where to go or what to do next. Any suggestions?? Feeling very discouraged as before the hyper feeling kicked in, I had 2 days of feeling very 'sharp' - my brain fog had lifted for the first time in years. I even broke down at the Dr, as I mistakenly thought there was light at the end of the tunnel. Feel like I am back to square one.
