I was at the doctors today and my Levothyroxine has been increased to 50mcg as my TSH level has went from 1.3 to 5.51.
I've also had problems with my eyes for 12 weeks (since i was diagnosed as under active thyroid). I've posted before asking for advice as they are always puffy,swollen,dry and red. Doctors prescribed me Eumovate (a strong steroid) and Hydromol ointment and an antihistamine a month ago. They seem to be working but I am having to use the steroid cream every few days, and your not supposed to use this long term as it burns a layer of your skin.
My main concern regarding my blood results today is that the doctor was very concerned, my Vitamin B12 is very low. It should range between 200-600 and mine is 107. The doctor doesn't understand why as I have a varied diet. I was glad to have this diagnosis as it explains why I am permanently exhausted but do you think this could be why I'm having problems with my eyes? I have been prescribed Hydroxycobalamin injections that I have to get every 2nd day for two weeks and then I'll have some more blood tests done and most likely be put on an oral supplement. But the doctor said because its so low he may have to refer me to Hematologist. I'm very worried about this and feel my body is just deteriorating.
Has anyone else had very low Vitamin B12 and underactive thyroid?
