I am about 9 weeks into my hypothyroid treatment. Started on 25 Levo and increased to 50 2 weeks ago. TSH went from 9.9 to 8.4 on last blood test. I think I feel worse since the increase. Currently touring in our caravan and should be feeling great?
The thing is I have been reading the posts on this site every morning and my head is spinning. Is there no-one out there who is happy and well just taking Levo? Is that just not possible? From what I read I will have to fight a battle to be well for the rest of my life, age 69 now, so not at the age where I want to spend the rest of my life in conflict with doctors and trying different supplements etc. The thought of going gluten free horrifies me! Eating out, my cruising holidays, how can I?
I thought it would be just a case of taking the meds, just increasing till well. Now I'm thoroughly depressed after reading all the problems people on here are having, some of which are horrendous, poor souls. And the thought that there are no doctors, even so called specialists, who will be able to help and advise, just beggars belief.
When I get home I am going to demand full copies of my blood tests. Sorry for the long spat. I just feel so confused and want to meet someone who tells me they are fine now being correctly dosed.
