Despite all the blood tests, most recorded here, Thyroid problems have remained undiagnosed. In the words of my GP; "you remain a diagnostic conundrum".
For the last 3 weeks I have been deteriorating. The usual; weakness, fatigue, constipation, "foggy" head, aching muscles and painful joints. Staggering about like a drunken sailor on a ship in a storm, struggling to drag myself even 200 yards to exercise my dog, slight inclines proving a real struggle, poor sleep, falling asleep whenever I allow myself to stop and relax, etc. Yesterday with everything at a low ebb, after waking up in the middle of the afternoon, I acquired a 50mcg of Levo and stuck it under my tongue. Within an hour the fog had cleared, my legs stopped aching and reacquired some strength.
Questions; 1) Could the improvement be put down to the 50mcg of Levo?
2) If so does this suggest that I hover around borderline deficiencies and 50 is enough to tip me over?
3) If Hashimoto's, would the Levo have this sort of response?
4) If the 50 was indeed the cause of the improvement how long would it last?
I'm going to get a Blue Horizon test kit and wait for the next real "down", is it worth doing the anti-bodies too?
