Well I posted here some weeks back and ordered some blood tests which were all in range:
TSH 3.17 (0.27-4.20)
Free T4 14.92 (12-22)
Free T3 5.16 (3.1-6.8)
Had another for antibodies which were present but under the range.
For quite a while I've felt dreadful. So tired, ice cold, dry hair and breaking nails, put weight on for no reason, brain fog, memory problems, sore throat, problems swallowing and feeling like pressure on the bottom of my throat.
Armed with the great advice from here I managed to get my GP to take me serious enough to prescrive Levo and refer me to an Endo. My appointment letter came today and my appointment is end of April.
I've been on 25mg for 2 weeks and now started on 50mg.
For the past week my hands have been steadily feeling warm! It's lovely not to have ice cold hands all the time, although it wears off as the day goes on. Does this mean it's working?
I was wearing gloves in the house and 4 layers all day. Still wearing the layers and the thermal socks as my feet are so cold.
I still feel nauseaous and tired but more hopeful.
I know Drs probably don't take it seriously but I've been taking my temp first thing when I wake up and it's still 35.2-35.6 (never get's higher than that)
I'm a bit worried about the Endo as I can't find anything out about him on the net and I'm worrying that if the Levo is working (or starting to!) he might take me off it because my results are in range.
I know nobody on here can help with that but there is nobody else I can discuss it with who would understand.
