Hi everyone, I've recently been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid - although I think I'm just on the borderline for treatment? I've been prescribed 25mcg levothyroxine, but am feeling worse since I've been taking it. Is this normal? Does it get worse before it gets better? I wake up every morning feeling like I have a hangover, have achy joints, weight gain and low mood.
My results were
Anti TPO result positive 150.8
Free T4 level 11.4
reception said there was no T3 level - do they have to test for this separately?
Any advice/pointers you can provide would be much appreciated. Thank you. x
