Hello I am currently looking for advice. I was diagnosed hypothyroid in 2012 and I take 50mcg levothyroxine. Long story short, I was given some very misguided advice from consultants regarding my dose and I have had some major dose adjustments. I am happy to increase to 75mcg; however these symptoms are plaguing me every day and I want to make sure that a dose increase is what I need.
Sweats, cold feeling in toes, numbness, acne, darkness under eyes, hair loss, puffy eyes, weight gain, dry and flaky lips, looking and feeling sick, nausea, bloating, feeling cold, damp and cold feeling to hands, flaky nails, crushing depression.
I am aware I have possibly hypo symptoms, but the sweats are what are bothering me. Is it safe to increase going by the bloods below?
50mcg levo - December 2017
TSH 5.66 (0.2 - 4.2)
FT4 14.7 (12 - 22)
FT3 3.2 (3.1 - 6.8)
I just want some form of normality in my life again.
