I had a TT five years ago and have never felt well since my TSH level is suppressed 0.01and I am on 100 throxine.doctor wants me to drop down to 75 I have refused so he has referred me to encrinologist .my results are
I asked for T3 levels to be tested but they weren't t done
I have felt unwell joint and muscle aches
Since last September I saw a rheumatologist who said my vit d was low (30) and b12 was 219
She diagnosed me with fibromyalgia I have been taking vit d and b12 and am starting to feel better
Was really annoyed today when doctor rang (locum not my own doctor) to tell me to drop my throxine to 75 I had a long discussion about why I wouldn't t drop only for him to tell me I was in danger of AF if I had surpressed TSH I asked him where was the evidence to prove this guess what ? No answer so his reply was I will refer you to encrinologist
If the encrinologist suggests I drop to 75 can I refuse?
I feel so fed up with all this none sense but at a loss as what is best to do .
Since I ve had my thyroid removed my cholesterol has risen to 6.8 and my anxiety levels have risen
Interesting point from the doctor was he said on my notes after surgery the encrinologist has suggested keeping my TSH at around 2 !! First I had heard that
I know lots of people on this site have similar battles any suggestions on how to face encrinologist ?
