I have recently been asked to lower my thyroxine from 175 to 100. The results (only ones tested) were as follows:
TSH 0.07 (range 0.27-4.2)
FT4 30.7 (range 10.5-24.5)
Viamin D and calcium and phosphate deficient
The only other blood test result out of norm was Red blood cell count (4.97 range 3.4-4.8) otherwise everything fine.
I have previously been diagnosed with Hashimoto, but NHS refuses to acknowledge it as my antibodies are now within the norm. I didn't have any hyper symptoms, and felt okish on the dose I had, however a surgeon (unrelated surgery for cyst removal) refused to put me under GA due to "overmedication".
I have lowered the dose to 100 but feel dreadful, lethargic, pain in all joints, stomach aches, muscle cramps and feeling a bit low. I'm a little bit worried that I'm doing myself no good with this drop in levo, but not sure if the symptoms are just an adjustment phase?
Any comments would be really welcomed.
