Hi everyone, I'm new on here and am after some tips please
I had my thyroid removed in August 2016 after the removal of one half discovered cancer in a nodule. I'm now in the frustrating process of trying to get my medication right.
Started on 100mcgs of levothyroxine = felt awful, bloods confirmed too low.
Went up to 125mcgs = felt better but still bad, bloods confirmed ok.
Went up to 150mcgs = felt great, bloods confirmed too high.
I'm now alternating between 125 and 150 to try and get a balance but don't feel good again (tired, hair loss, dry skin, headaches, bloated face).
I've never had any other tests than the thyroid function test and am booked in with my GP in a few weeks to ask for more tests (she previously suggested T3), but I was wondering whether there's others out there with similar issues who might be able to suggest some extra tests while they are taking blood!
Thanks in advance
