Hi all some of you may have read my original post from joining this fantastic group that im so glad i found i am hypo and have been for 7 years still have my thyroid gland in place just not functioning as it should...
so as some of u may know after suffering extreme anxiety/restlessness/too much energy/mood swings over xmas 2016, it all got too much and i told my doctor who palmed me off with anxiety tablets,... then one day i happen to read the leaflet on my levothyroxine to find i was having all the symptoms of too much levo! i had my dose reduced to 75mcg from 100mcg but was still suffering, so i decided to stop them altogether and those were the happiest best 3 weeks of my life! all the symptoms disappeared!..
anyway to cut a long story short before i stopped the levo my bloods had gone haywire and have been since august last year but i was never told about this!., my doctor referred me to and endo as my tsh and t4 were both high which she says is unusual T4 was 24.4 (11 - 23) and TSH was 8.1 (0.27 - 4.5)...
after stopping the levo for 3 weeks my T4 dropped to 5.7 (11 - 23) and TSH went to 100 (0.27 - 4.5), but still didnt have any hypo symptoms?
after doctors orders i started taking 50mcg again as she said i cannot take nothing as my levels are not good, so i have been taking 50mcg for 6 days now and the anxiety has started again, along with nervousness/ restlessness mood swings? like hyper symptoms?
my question is is it possible to go into hyper that fast and that i just dont need that much levo? or is my body just adjusting and the symptoms will subside??
im so confused? should i just take 25mcg instead until i see the endo?
Could it be that the levo dont agree with me anymore?
i cannot live like this i cannot sleep because my mind and body wont stop racing..
