Hi I am a new member in Canada on the frigid prairies. I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism for over 15 years. I was becoming hyperthyroid almost three years ago on 88 mcg of levothyroxine and was having palpitations/tachycardia with TSH 0.3 so I immediately stopped medication. I have been off and on taking 50- 75 mcg in the last couple years but had halted in the last several months because of jitteriness, insomnia and feeling very tired and unwell.
Recent complete blood work showed all my labs are normal but my TSH 3.25 and my doctor told me to resume 75 mcg Levothyroxine. I did for one week and felt very tired, anxious, and intolerant to cold and low mood. I did not think my TSH seems high and wasn't keen about taking more medication. I am stable healthy weight for my height and take supplements and eat healthy. I have trouble finding a doctor who doesn't overmedicate in this province and hope to find information on this site.
