hope you had a productive day and things are getting better for you?
I have B12 deficiency - so 3 monthly injections and In October '16 very underactive thyroid blood test result so, they advised me to increase 125mcgs Levothyroxine up to 150
In December, 7 weeks later, another blood test showed it was still low so recommended to increase by another 25mcgs Levothyroxine to 175
Beginning of March felt like a human tornado, bad-tempered fast, fast, fast! doing EVERYTHING. Mixing up words, handbag in the fridge syndrome. B12 injection on 8th
In April I was absolutely weak and thoroughly exhausted unable to think, concentrate or even have the concentration to make a book I was reading make sense. Waking up just as exhausted as I was on going to bed.
So worried after all this, I dropped back down to 150mcgs
Now I'm Apathetic, can't take an interest in anything; not even my beloved textile art or the Spanish I was learning!
So, Today a visit to Doctors, she said "tenderness in thyroid region could be the result of the virus"( my husband kindly shared it with me. )
The thumping in the chest "not to worry about it, it's nothing to do with the heart it sounds fine"(for which I'm truly grateful) " it's palpitations" but has arranged an E.C.G. for next Thursday.
Finally I asked if there were any other tests that could be done with regards to calrifying the thyroid situation,
she said(with a smile)
"We only need TSH there is no need for anything else it would just cause unnecessary expense. Blood test on 23rd June "to see if the TSH is within the ref. range.
What do you think?
