Been diagnosed with underactive thyroid since april last year still feel rubbish.
getting lots of joint pain thumbs really bad causing problems opening bottles and gripping at times.
managed to get my gp to test my vitamin d levels and it is
40.9 nmol/L range 50-175 so insufficient
she has told me to take 400-800 iu but when she realised I was taking 1000iu a day she said to stay on that and she will retest in 6 weeks along with tsh.
I was on 50mcg levo for months telling them it was not enough but they left it and my tsh shot up to 10.66 so they have doubled to 100mcg levo that was checked and is coming down and is at 2.65 after 6 weeks but doctor wants to wait for a further 6 weeks to check them both to see how the levels are
any advise would be great
