I'm at my witsends with this whole Thyroid issue.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in October 2017 where my level was around 6 and the nurse said we should leave it and test again in 6 weeks time. The next test came back at 25 and she put me on Levothyroxine (Teva) 75mg after a week of taking these tablets I ended up in A&E thinking I was going to have a heart attack, I was so scared and my anxiety was through the roof.
The hospital then put me 25mg (Mercury Pharma) and after a week it had all calmed down. A week after that my throat started swelling so I thought I should increase my dose to 50mg which after a few days I my throat had gone. Two weeks in I was still taking 50mg and felt fine but was running out of tablets before my next test so I split the 75mg. A week later and to this point now the palpatations came back with sickness, loose bowls, headaches, shaking, hot and cold and very tired.
I've gone back onto the 25mg but I'm still not feeling better and I seem to be worse in the morning. I had my blood done and my level has reduce from 25 to 18 but I've never felt worse in my life. The doctor is calling me today to see what I want to do, whether its stay on 25mg increase to 50mg or change brands...I am now getting anxiety over making the right choice as it seems all options just make me worse. I just want to come off it all.
Can anyone offer some advice?
