I posted a while ago as a newbie and you were great! I wonder if any of you could offer me some advice or tell me if I’m thinking correctly as I have a drs apt tomorrow to discuss some ongoing strange neurological issues I have been having since starting Levo in sept 17 since finding out I was hypothyroid.
Basically a few days after starting Levo I felt weird, joint pains, marked weakness on my left arm and hand and small nerve twitches that have been occurring all over my body and now recently on my face I also am feeling generalised anxiety which is new to me. I’ve had blood tests and MRI of brain all fine. I don’t have a neuro apt until the 1st of may!!
(I’m currently on a gluten free diet and on vitamin supplements as advised 5 months ago by you all and all in range albeit some still on lower end of range as it’s a slow process)
So Gps (seen 3 in my practice) state these symptoms are not possibly related to Levo! But I’m not convinced...My last bloods were taken last week (T4 12.1 lower end of normal range and TSH 6.7 our of range) on 50mcg Levo.
Im under medicated. Question is do I ask the GP tomorrow to up the dose with all these other weird symptoms? Or not! (Scared it’ll make neuro symptoms worse!) Could the symptoms be due to being under mediated? Or am a reacting to Levo? Dr didn’t want me to just stop Levo. Could I request an Endo referral?
Thanks for taking the time to read this
