Hi I am hoping someone an throw some light on my visit to my GP.
Approx. 1 month ago I had a very comprehensive blood screening, everything was tested (I posted results on site). TSH 0.59 mU/L. 0.3-5.5). Free thyroxine 22.9 pmol/L (11.0-23.0.)
I have been taking 100mcg Levo after an increase from 75mcg/100mcg on alternate days about 8 weeks ago.
On Friday last week I had my annual check up with the nurse. She too took bloods. I didn't ask what she was testing for, just that I had had a full blood screening only a couple of weeks ago...she informed me that it was part of the testing so she needed to do it again.
I received a letter yesterday asking me to make an appointment to see my GP. I managed to get an appointment this morning. She tells me that my TSH is 0.2 (0.3-5.5). and my T4 is now 24 (11.0-23.0) and I am now hyper! The only hyper symptoms I seem to have are palpitations, which I take 20mg propranolol twice a day for, and have been since last June, when I has a TT. I am putting on weight and am still tired and lethargic which I thought were hypo symptoms... she wanted to reduce my Levo to 75 mcg, but I persuaded her to leave me on 100mcg in week and 75mcg at weekends....I will try this, but I have TED and when I was on the low dose of Levo I had double vision...on increasing to 100mcg each day this double vision has now gone...my eyes are still swollen but I can cope with that, but not the double vision returning. Can anyone tell me how my bloods can alter in such a short time? and do you think by reducing the Levo only by 50mcg a week it will make much difference. Does anyone else feel tired and put on weight even with hyper results??? Sorry about the long post...
