I'm trying to iron this out and would so love to hear from you please if can relate to this? As I find the differing opinions and remarks quite overwhelming with brain fog, and anxiety and depression going on
My tsh was between 4 to 5 so started levo 25 and 50
The awful heavy eyes went but fatigue persisted to lesser degree, and the depression came in and the panick reactions and anxiety really notched upwards to unbearable pitch and feel a bit paranoid at times, scary business as quite aware I'm doing it.. btw I spent 17 years in and out of docs being offered antidepressants and told tsh was normal
Sorry to drone on......
Please, has anyone upped their levo when feeling like this and found the symptoms did lessen? Even to wellness. Did you reduce down to a one tsh?
And I take hat off if you have felt this way and done that, as I just want want to stop it basically, as a natural reaction as dread the symptoms worsening, worse, I've become a bit phobic too, and the Irational fear dyer!
I find work especially difficult this way, or any stressful moments are over dramatised
How did you get better basically, my latest results are as usual, good level t4, lowish t3 and hypo tsh
Also, Is it essential to get tsh down to a low number to pep up the system? is this the main factor? as when a tsh 4 , the system is obviously labouring
Or is it time with these symptoms to add in t3 regardless,? Could this bring down to the right level and wellness this way? ( I know it's only an indicator but is relevant to see where you are up to )
Many thanks in advance J🦋
