Ok so I saw my GP yesterday and as expected he wouldn't up my Levo dose, he seemed quite pleased that I'd had some minor improvements and although I explained I felt I'm slipping backwards again he gave me a prescription for another four months of 25mg of Levo and said we will review again then as it's still early days. So I'm not sure whether to just up my Levo myself as I have now have five boxes so I could double the amount to 50mg a day and see how that goes and then I could always source my own additional Levo or should I just keep on the 25mg until I can go and see the private clinic I want to see. The thing is I've just found out I can't have time off work until July and so even though I can get an appt before then I can't go because work won't let me have time off.
The other thing is over the last week or so I've been feeling really spaced out and just off I've also been getting headaches which I thought might have just been down to lady hormones but I'm now thinking it might be the Levo as today and yesterday they've been horrible and I feel like I'm in a bubble. I think it's the Levo as I took my tablet this morning and my head was really bad a couple of hours after but as the day is going on it seems to be easing up a bit.
I just feel a bit trapped really, I'm definitely not going to just put up with being on 25mg of Levo it's pointless and my GP has obviously just put me on it to appease me!
So I'm not sure if upping the Levo would help in the short term as I know I can see the other people in July which is only a couple of months away or whether I'm better coming off it altogether or just staying on 25mg until I can go the the clinic and hopefully get some NDT.
Any advice would be great.
