I was on 125mg of levo and my TSH at last check had risen slightly to 1.4, so I've literally just had my bloods done today to get them checked again as I'm starting to feel very tired. I'm finding it hard to do anything. I've got a nice job at the moment and some private contract work, but every time I sit down to start something, I find it very hard to focus and I'm getting behind. I don't know if this is a symptom. I've already rung in sick a couple of times to the job and I worry like mad that I'm going to lose it.
Anyway, the other reason I'm struggling is that I've been sick for weeks. A cold virus and cough, followed by full-blown flu, which is now an awful cold with a chesty cough. My throat has started to go again today and my glands are up. My mouth is full of ulcers. It has been like this since the second week of September and I'm getting really down with it all. I don't know if this is a result of poor thyroid function too.
I'm so worried because I'm knackered and I just want to sleep, but I can't lose my job.
I don't know where I go from here.
They say wait 6 weeks, get your bloods rechecked. If they are going downhill, you have that time to wait, then the time it takes for a dose increase (if you are given one) to kick in. All this times passes and then any lift seems to be temporary. I'm losing more and more parts of my life. I feel good for nothing at the moment and very pointless.
