Hi, just had my results back today
I have taken 75mcg thyroxine for about 18 years but I have noticed that recently I am suffering insomnia, feeling very hot at night and headaches most mornings.
I have no change to my diet etc and I have been on B12 for around 18 months (deficiency caused by chronic gastritis)
I am also on oestrogen patch: 50mg since a surgical menopause 13 years ago (I’m 59)
My GP wants to reduce my levothyroxine
And I’m worried because I have tried before and after 2 weeks felt completely drained of energy and crying all the time.
I have a feeling that the insomnia and feeling hot and reduced exercise tolerance may be caused by too much levo but I’ve been on the same dose for so long I can’t understand why?
Has anyone any advice please?
Thank you so much, Louise
