I've had an ongoing problem with meds for almost 20 years. I don't seem to be able to tolerate any for more than two days without developing a really sore stomach, bloatedness, itchiness, hairloss and very dry skin. My weight and overall wellbeing was manageable for a period of time I was Evotrox, but since it was withdrawn a few years back I have been unable to find something that works and I'm feeling terrible and gaining weight rapidly, despite a lack of appetite. It sounds bizarre but I seem to gain weight more when I'm on meds. I've been fortunate to try Martindales purified thyroxine, T3 only and WP Thyroid most recently without any joy. It seems that something builds up in my body and a get a little boost a few days after I stop taking them. I really don't know what else to do.
I'm now after some advice on my most recent tests when I had been on no meds for about a month previous. Your comments would be most appreciated as I don't know what else to do/try. I should be on 125mcg of thyroxine but I can't even seem to tolerate 50mcg now.
T3 and T4 normal, TSH borderline at 4.58
Free T3 4.2 Range (4.0-7.0 U)
Free T4 16 Range (10-25 U)
TSH 4.58 Range (0.55-4.78 U)
Thanks in advance,
