Hi, I am new to the forum and I am 24 years old. I feel very alone at the moment. My endo has said since my levels look overdosed I don't need thyroid medication despite being diagnosed 5 years ago with hypothyroid with a TSH of 45.2 (0.2 - 4.2) FT4 10.3 (12 - 22) and started on 25mcg levothyroxine Out of every single day I have taken levothyroxine only one day did I ever feel normal and that was when I was only 25mcg!
I was started on T3 2 years ago by a very good endo since my FT3 was constantly at the bottom of the range and I seemed to become more underactive after times of illness and stress and I continued to have frequent dose changes, more up than down until eventually I was on 175mcg levothyroxine. My endo was happy my levels were stabilised on just 75mcg levothyroxine and 10mcg T3 and she was happy to increase all the way up to 175mcg levothyroxine with the T3 but that all changed when a new endo was assigned to my care when the good endo left.
So this endo I am now with reduced my levothyroxine by 25mcg and took away my T3 and he is now saying I don't seem to need any thyroid medication any more.
My symptoms are mainly headaches, swelling in neck, hard stool, pins and needles in feet, toes and fingers, joint and back pain, periods flooding the bed sheets and towels, tiredness, loss of appetite, deafness, ears ringing, burning in fingers, cold intolerance, skin feeling cold to the touch, flaky and blotchy skin, zero libido, weight gain. The weight gain used to be something I was proud of because a few pounds here and there wasn't going to hurt but now it's becoming worrying especially since I have now possibly grown out of my wedding dress which I will be wearing next February.
I feel that my social life, personal life and life at work is failing because of what my endo has said and I really am feeling at a loss as to what I need to do . Any ideas please?
