I always had hypothyroidism symptoms, except weight gain (i have opposite), so i was never tested, until a year ago, and I had TSH 7,40 then.
Doc sent me to some ultrasound(?) test that captured imaged of my neck but everything looked fine so I wasn't put on any meds.
One year since (this month) i got tested again by another doc, and now my TSH is 15. I saw another, third doc with results and he put me on Levothyroxine 25mcg a day.
I took it for 6 days, felt ok and maybe even a little better (could be placebo effect), so i decided to try 50mcg for the last 2 days, because i read that 25 is super low and you should normally up you dose by 25/week. However, I immediately started feeling bad - I cannot concentrate on anything, it's extremely hard to get out of bed and I just feel really tired.
- Is this reaction to higher dose normal and 25 mcg is not too low for 15 TSH?
- Could it be that my iron deficiency interferes with Levothyroxine? Or any other deficiencies?
- Does anyone here also have the PCOS? Could this condition affect the Thyroid treatment?
