I have been taking 50mcg of levothyroxine for about 8 weeks. I went back to my GP after a thryoid function blood test 2 weeks ago. I didn't ask for specific numbers but she told me my results were now normal. But I haven't been feeling any better - still exhausted all the time, unexplained pain in random muscles and joints, brain fog and memory loss, dry skin...
I have also changed my diet, I am now gluten free, diary free, sugar, caffeine and alcohol free. I add a lot of coconut oil/milk to my food. I drink a green smoothie every day. I am taking supplements - magnesium, iron, vit B, vit C, vit D, calcium, zinc, fish oil.
I am an adventure racer and career firefighter so I exercise/train at least 5 days a week (sometimes twice a day). I don't recover well from training any more and definitely can't train as hard as I used to.
Anyway, I have decided to increase my levo dose to 100mcg, just to see if it makes a difference, do you think this is a sensible thing to do? I would normally never go against my doctor's advice.
