I have just discovered this forum and was hoping someone can help / advise me.
I am a 59 year old male. I was diagnosed with Under Active Thyroid in 2012. Initially I was on 75 micrograms LEVOTHYROXINE. In 2015 this was upped to 100 mcg. I had my annual Blood Test in March this year and everything was fine. However, 2 months ago I started to experience severe Tiredness and Fatigue. My Arms and Legs feel like Jelly and I have been having Headaches and Dizzy spells. I went to the GP and was referred to have a Fasting Blood Test. My TSH level was 7.46 (Range 0.35 - 5.5). All the other reading are in Range. e.g. FREE T4 15.8 ( 1019.8). The GP increased my dose to 125 mcg. That was 10 days ago. I still feel CR@P !
Any idea when will the medication kick in ? I am due to go back for another Blood Test in early September. Any suggestions for easing my ailments.
Thanks in anticipation
