Hello everyone, just need some help/advice as I’m feeling quite worried and anxious.
Yesterday I was told I have subclinical hypothyroidism and told to start taking 50 of levothyroxine. My tsh results were 18.1 so she said I am literally heading fast towards full blown hypothyroidism.
I do get a lot of muscle pain/strains and fatigue but I had a thyroid test in 2018 which was perfect.
I’ve recently been told I’m deficient in B12 and B6 so been supplementing with them (spray and drops) and also a gut phytobiotic. Could those have pushed my TSH levels up to look this abnormal? I’m also scared that as I’ve only had one blood test with this level it could be a mistake or a fluke? As I have always had normal thyroid tests come back before. Should I start the levothyroxine or should I insist that I have another test in 6-8 weeks? I am confused and feel overwhelmed with all the information and what I should do. Also seeing other people’s results which are so low and subclinical I feel like why are mine so high and subclinical apparently?
Can anybody help me?
