My last set of bloods showed both T4 and T3 not far below mid range, but TSH had gone up. I was told to raise my dose from 50mcg a day to 50/75 for 3 weeks and then to 75mcg a day. But I'm finding this really hard.
Last week, for reasons I can't now remember(!) I ended up taking 75mcg 3 days in a row and I felt terrible! Way worse than on 50mcg a day. I ended up really tired and with prickling sensations in my feet, that moved into my legs overnight and also a burning skin sensation and a flushed face feeling (skin wasn't hot, face wasn't flushed and temperature was normal). I was way more tired and anxiety came back. On Sunday I didn't take anything to let the levels drop a bit and started back onto the 50/75 regime on Monday. I actually had a good day yesterday. Got plenty done at work, could shift boxes around easily. Finally got tired about 7pm and went home. Remained tired all evening.
Today I've taken the 75mcg and although my brain isn't too bad it's starting to obsess about how I feel (a sure sign something is wrong) and I'm really physically tired if I try to do anything. Out of puff, legs hurting in the thighs, backache as soon as I lean a little. What is it with the 75mcg?!! It makes me feel worse. Do I just need to give it time?
