Hello, I would really welcome any words of wisdom. I am a little confused by my latest blood test. In February I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis after 2/3years of various symptoms.
24th Feb - TSH - 12.703
TSH - 7.191 (0.550-4.780)
T4 Libre 10.36 (11.50-22.70)
TPO 433.3 (<60)
After these results in March I was put on 25mg of levo for 2weeks, increasing to 50g)
My next blood test was 12/05/2017 and was TSH - 5.383 (0.550-4.780) - I was given an increase to 62.5mg
During June I began to feel 'normal' but I had a relapse in July and felt awful.
My next appointment was 13/07/2017 - and next blood test just before the appointment was TSH 1.534 (0.550-4.780)
Much against the endrocologist advise I was given an increase for Levo to 75mg. I really argued the case for it because I was feeling rubbish and was thinking I would feel better if I could get down to 1.
Since then I have beginning to feel better but had started to have major hot flushes and sweats, losing weight, not sleeping at night...I had written a post about it and it was assumed I was having a Hash flare up as 75mg is not a high dose.
To date the sweats and hot flushes have gone and I am feeling ok but still tired and not sleeping.
I had a blood test today and on the paper from the clinic they have written I am Hyperthyroidie as my TSH is now 0.060 (0.550-4.780)
I am confused by this - should I cut my medication back to 62.5mg which presumably will take my TSH back to 1.5mg? I am just fed up of feeling tired all the time, being forgetful and emotional amongst other things. When I was on that dose I still didn't feel well. I would really welcome any clarity or thoughts. I have found my doctor and endrocrinologist unsympathetic and knowing little about Hashimoto's.
