Hi I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid in 2013 and my GP is reluctant to increase my levothyroxine of 50mcg because of the risk of me becoming hyperthyroid. My endo has also said he believes I am suffering from some form of general anxiety disorder.
I have been on higher doses before, as much as 175mcg levothyroxine with 10mcg T3. Symptoms are currently low libido, period pain worsening the more I am into my cycle, joint pain, red blotches on skin, weight gain, tiredness, memory loss, poor concentration, sweating with exertion, hair loss, pins and needles, periods heavy, puffy eyes and black circles around eyes, feeling cold, nails flaky and splitting, eyelashes and eyebrows looking sparser.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
