Hi everyone. I had half my thyroid out at end of July, and for a few weeks felt ok. Then it hit me like a bus, and I started Levo 25mg at the start of September. My TSH the other week was around 3.5 and the levo has made little difference to that, so I know it needs work.
I have a number of symptoms which have started since this, such as palpitations, aching hands, waking up hours earlier than I used to, constant headache and what would appear floaters/pulses of light, and had eyes checked twice and nothing found, so I am also putting that down to hormones/neuro issues.
Due to see my endo at start of Nov.
Question I have, is this how it works now, I suffer until I get in to see someone? Pretty obvious I need more Levo, so do people just up it themselves?
What happens if you are symptomatic, or dont feel levels are right, but cant gain access to drugs?
Is NDT the only option?
Do many of you now self medicate yourselves?
I think there maybe a few of my hormones playing up to be honest, but just want to try and get TSH as right as I can first.
Thanks in advance.
