So I have slightly increased my Levo only to 37.5mg I'm to anxious to take too much in one go but once again a few days after my headaches are easing off, I have more energy and the palpatations have calmed right down, so I'm thinking maybe it is just due to low dosage rather than me reacting to the Levo.
The thing is I think my thyroid has been struggling for so long that it may be I just need really small slow increases does that sound right?
I have a friend who has hashimotos and she said if I run out of tablets before my next Dr visit she can let me have some of hers to tie me over so at least I know I can slowly keep increasing and then hopefully I can convince the GP to up my prescription.
I'm going to get my own blood tests done as I know he will only be able to look at the TSH level and if that's gone down quite a bit then I'll probably have a battle with him as the good old NHS won't do the other tests as we know.
I just wanted to ask another question. I've been increasingly having joint/muscle problems and wondered if anyone else had this. I know it's a hypo symptom but this is more like my muscles seem to strain really easily. This morning I moved in the chair and my back went into spasm. I also find that I seem to have constant stiffness in a couple of my fingers and I put my back out a couple of months ago and I'm still in agony if I move the wrong way. Just wondered if this is part and parcel of it or if I need to look at perhaps other causes like arthritis etc. Hubby has said I should take fish oil with my Vit D as that is good for joint/muscles but just wanted to see if it's a usual complaint!
