Having struggled with a host of symptoms since January I finally found a fantastic private GP who diagnosed subclinical hypothyroidism in March based on my ever elevating TSH, low T4 and the advice of you wonderful people on this forum.
Ive now been on Levo for 6 weeks with one week at 25mcg and 5 on 50mcg, although I was starting to feel much better I have found this past week my symptoms have begun to return, particularly the fatigue and hand stiffness!
Im just wondering if this is common despite my doctor being happy with my blood from two weeks ago (at end of post)?
Im terrified of going back to how I was in January!
Ive been doing some reading and Im wondering if NDT might be a better option, particularly with the weight gain! or whether I just need to increase my Levo despite the good blood results?
Any advice is always really appreciated.
Thank You, L
