I'm hoping for a little guidance - I keep reading that people feel proper unwell with a TSH of +5.
My levels were first tested in April 2017 - TSH was 99.9 (range 0.3-4.2) and free T4 of 4 (range 12-22). I was out on 50mg Levothyroxine.
I am now TSH of 90 with a free t4 of 9.3. My doctor has doubled my dose to 100mg Levo, but doesn't seem that concerned.
Symptoms-wise, I originally had extreme vertigo and low BP which has now corrected itself. I get sleepy in the afternoon, but I have a 10 month old so I guess that's par for the course? My hairdresser says my hair is a little thin at the back, and my ankle (just one) has gone all dry. But other than that, I feel okay?
Does anyone know why I don't feel absolutely dreadful? I'm not complaining, just confused.
