From 25 MCG, I moved to 50 MCG in June 2017. Things seemed to improve. I had less nervousness than before. My blood tests on 3rd Aug are:
Tsh 1.4 (0.3-4.5)
FT3 5.4 (3.1-6.8)
FT4 20.1 (11-22)
I increased my dose to 75 mcg 2 weeks ago. Since yesterday, I have had some pain and swelling at the base of my right hand thumb. I have never had any swelling during the entire 2 years of my illness. Any new symptom gives me anxiety. So, I am anxious as well.
Do you think swelling could be due to levo overdose. Is this common?
Shall I wait and watch few more days. If I go to doctor for showing my hand, she will say apply ibuprofen gel, etc.
I am currently taking 75 mcg levo, vit d, k2, recently started 200 mg magnesium???, I am very confused and anxious.
I am going through a lot of stress with my legs for nearly 2 years I have to say. I have spiking spines on my shin bones (bone spurs) inside the knee joints. This prevents me from bending my legs. This loss of partial mobility is my biggest stress in life. Doctors don't take any interest in rectifying this. Anyhow, this stress is adding to my anxiety on a daily basis.
Whenever I am anxious, I do think also if I am going over with my levo, because anxiety is a common symptom of levo too. Because my levo is not GP prescribed but a trial of levo given on my repeated requests, I do worry.
