I have been struggling with my breathing since August last year. Doctors thought it was my cold or asthma but it coincides with a drop in Levo in January last year. I was dropped from 150 levo which I had been on for a long time but lost 2 stone in weight through illness and then was overmedicated so was dropped to 100 Levo. Over the following months my breathing got gradually worse and to be honest I thought it was my Copd to start with. From January this year I ended up being on a nebuliser and in hospital 5 times until April. Since April I have been on a steroid inhaler but have had to drop my Levo down as felt really over medicated. I only feel well on 50 Levo but know it's not enough hence my high tsh.
my latest blood test results are
tsh over 100 (0.27-4.20)
serum free t4 8.8 (9.0-26.00)
serum creatinine 91 ((50-90)
I did also have my folate, ferritin and b12 tested but the receptionist doesn't seem to have printed them off but I was told by Dr that I also have anaemia, which he didn't give me anything for it. He just told me I have to get my Levo back up to what it was before. He didn't listen when I said I can't because of symptoms.
have had a scan on thyroid middle of July and the Dr that did the scan said I have hardly any thyroid left. When I saw gp about 10 days later the scan report hadn't come through.
sorry for long post but don't know what to do. Feel desperate to get my life back.
hoping someone can help with where I go from here.
forgot to say I have been underactive thyroid for over 25 years
