Hi guys. I am four weeks on levothyroxine 75mg daily. Feeling worse than when I started in particular the fatigue and constipation are very bad. Body temp and sleep have improved. Prior to starting on the medication My TSH was 5.06 top of range was 4.2. My T4 was 12.5 range 11-25. Had lots of symptoms fatigue constipation depression insomnia pains and aches puffy face etc. I am a bit concerned by my ferritin level as I have not had an infection and I do not take any supplements whatsoever although I may need to now for the folate and Vitamin D. I did ask my doctor to check me out for deficiencies but she said to wait and see how I got on with the levothyroxine. I was feeling so bad I went ahead myself and ordered the tests. Glad I did now as I am to see her next week. Could the ferritin be causing my symptoms?
I got some bloods done by blue horizon thes are my results,
