I have realised that while being treated for infertility (yes, probably due to thyroid issues) I was given Parlodel which is also used for Parkinsons or for a pituitary tumor in infertility cases. This is from a note I made when i went into my GP's and read through the paper notes they held a while ago. I would be interested to know what made the consultant give me this drug and did he have any reason to think that I had a pituitary tumor or problem. I have an appointment in the autumn with neurology to check out a tremor which is worse on my right and is starting to interfere with eating, writing, sewing and I'm fed up with deleting stuff on the PC when I don't want to. I have had this tremor for about thirty years but only recently has it become worse.
I am hypothyroid and taking 128mcg levothyroxine and 31.5mcg of liothyronine daily. I increased the liothyronine about six weeks ago as my annual blood test from my GP showed a decrease in FT3 from my previous private one in November. I think that this was probably down to the terrible weather we had after Christmas when I really struggled.
