Hi there, ive had great support on here from you lovely people about recent blood tests and a very recent diagnosis of an underactive thyroid and Hashimotos from my private GP and really need some more help if that's ok..
The private GP started me on 50mg Levothyroxine for just a week..I was terrible on it immense fatigue and pain (already a huge factor for me with diagnosis of M.E. and fibro 12 years ago.)itchy, drowsy and feeling very sick.
He decided to increase me to 100mg which made things a lot worse, i lasted about 5 days on it and ended up in a Hyper state, no sleep for four nights and beyond agitated and panicky breathlessness.. really awful so I've stopped the medication two nights ago and I'm waiting for him to ring me today.
.I'm trying to read as much as I can to see what I can do, I'm sleeping mostly now and cannot focus for long so I don't know how to address this I feel worse then before and very anxious and down 😰.
Was he right to increase that quickly and that high? I'm sensitive to medication anyway..I just don't know what to do because I feel so ill right now. Sorry for the moan thanks for reading xx
