Long ish story but here we go. Back in September 2016 I felt really good and was even managing to lose some weight - on 175mcg of Thyroxine. Blood test and Dr decides it's a bit low so needs some tweeking. Stopped 25mcg on Saturday and Sunday with disastrous results!
Back to living in a fog with no energy, hair falling out, muscle pains in legs, sleeping for 3 maybe 4 hours during the day, nails splitting and breaking and worst of all back to weight gain!
Next appointment in January I got them back and a blood test in March showed dreadful results.
I had an increase of 25mcg for all the other tests until October when I had a 12.5 increase which seemed to be a magical number because I now feel hooooman again but as the last test is below 1 they want to remove my last dose increase as they think the amount I am taking is too high! I am on 262.5mcg per day.

I know I am within range but they are still dogmatic about taking my life - sorry dose away.
Can anyone give me ammunition to fight this? Something written down about being under 1 is ok.
Sorry this is long but I am up against a nurse that knows everything but has still never met me!!
Thanks in advance.
