Hi sorry I think I wrote before but dues to severe M.E I cannot find it.
My GP keeps phoning me about the NDT amount as she believes it is too high but I feel better and I want to increase but bit scared.
I started the tai thiroyd NDT in October 2015 and it has helped but still have severe M.E...which I know is bucket diagnosis but it is all we have and had it for 18.5yrs...
so on 4gr to date and want to try to go to 4.5
TSH 0.03 FT4 14
In april 2015 I was on plain T4 levo 100mcg and felt awful and
TSH 0.25 FT4 20.4
I know you said before that it is an expected result for the TSH to lower on NDT.
I just want to be well.
My symptoms are such exhaustion and my fingers are puffy. ridged nails. weight gain. low mood but then I am house bound with M.E. can hardly stand up..live in bungalow with paid help
also would low adrenals affect thyroid?
I am on my own only with paid help and ok have the M.E label but want to feel better than this. I constantly have flu symptoms which is part of M.E side.
have low blood volume. thalessima trait. pale gums. I went on b12 forum but so many mixed responses with b12 at 536.
should I ignore GP? get more tests privately? do the pinprick test prove good results?
sorry muddled but just so tired and fed up.
