I've been struggling for a long time with this no thyroid bs, to put it bluntly. I've been as high as 200 and the lowest was 125 but the constant is that I feel sooo fatigue in a wired way since starting levo that it feels like I've been awake for days and trying to get by on coffee. I've gone from 137 (felt sluggish) to 150 mcg and find I'm achy and turns out I'm only staying in stage 2 sleep all of the time, also extremely achy. I awake and my eyes ache from behind and I feel like I'm breaking a fever now. My doc wants me to raise again w/o having done labs but my TSH was 2.1 and FT4 was 1.2 right at this time. My FT3 is flat regardless and that's nothing new but T3 doesn't give me that vibrant feeling like it does for so many.
I'm confused because regardless of my dosing, my labs tend to look the same at every single draw. I feel like I'm affected more mentally than physically by levo and I'm kind of curious if maybe this is more being inundated by T4 and maybe if I had less then I could sleep for once in 3 years since my TT and wouldn't feel like I needed to take ten minutes to convince myself to get up from th couch. No deep sleep either and I've noticed this has gotten worse about two weeks after raising, so thoughts? I feel like I've been a cripple and have done everything right but just want thoughts of there is something paradoxical going on.
