Hello, me again! Ive been having extreme anxiety since January, when I think I might have been on too high a dose of Levothyroxine (my TSH had crept up from the 1s to the 2s and I increased my dose from 125mcg to 150mcg). After I realised I might be overmedicated I reduced right down and became hypo (TSH of 12.5 [0.27-4.20), and my anxiety stayed the same, so I increased my dose back to what it had been before when I felt reasonably OK, a bit tired but no anxiety, (125mcg). After 4 weeks had my bloods checked by Medichecks and they came back as follows:
TSH 2.94 (0.27-4.20)
Free T4 16.200 (12.00-22.00)
Free T3 4.62 (3.10-6.80)
After that increased my Levothyroxine to 150mcg (Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat) and 125mcg (Tues, Thurs, Sun). Didn't want to go up to 150mcg daily because I thought I was probably overmedicated on that dose, although I have no blood results to confirm this other than the NHS TSH result which did go down to a reasonably good level (probably 1 or below).
That was nearly three weeks ago and I'm still having terrible anxiety (feeling panicky, anxious and low in mood). At what point do I give up and accept this as a mental health issue and seek support from my GP. Feeling despondent that things aren't getting any better. My vitamins, minerals and antibodies are all ok. Any advice or recommendations from any of you kind people?
