Hi. Can anyone help??
Recently diagnosed with hashimotos with a TSH level of 5+. Main symptoms were headaches, migraine, weight gain and the worst insomnia. Initially started on 50mcg of levothyroxine and after a 7- 10 days was feeling much better and my sleeping pattern was back to normal, such a relief A follow up blood test after 6 weeks showed that my TSH was down to 3.8 so the doctor decided to up my levothyroxine to 75mcg as she wants my TSH to be about 1. Around a week after this increase all my old symptoms have reappeared - headaches, gained 3lbs in weight and more annoyingly I cannot sleep again!!! I'm now 2 and a half weeks into 75mcg daily dose and feeling pretty frustrated that an increase dose has done this even though it's needed and I'm exhausted. Has anyone had a similar experience??? I don't know what to do for the best...... thanks for reading, any insights would be great.
