Like many others here i've had to resort to self medicating, as my GP won't acknowledge that there is something going on with my thyroid.
I've had so much support, so first of all a huge thanks to those who have commented on posts or private messaged me or answered my many questions (!). I literally couldn't have done this without you or this group.
As i have every hypothyroid under the sun, yet have a "normal" TSH, it was suggested to me both here and on TPAUK that i may have Thyroid Hormone Resistance, so that is what I've gone with
I ordered Tiromel from one of the recommended websites and started 4 weeks ago on 25mcg a day. I then increased to 50mcg a day after 2 weeks. My energy levels and sleeping have both improved soooo much already - I'm pretty well like a new person. Plus my temperature is now an average of 36.4 in the mornings rather than 36.2 - so its getting there! I still have off days, but more on days than off!
Today i started on 75mcg a day, as I've been told that people with THR usually need at least this.
Just one question - I know that i keep raising it until i get the symptoms of overdose, then i reduce again til i find my level - what are the symptoms? Feeling fine so far!
