My GP started me on a dose of 25mcg of levothyroxime. In fact it was his locum. I still feel unwell after three weeks haven't really noticed any improvement whatsoever. I know increasing the dose has to be done slowly but I am now 7lbs heavier than when I started taking the levo - could I legitimately go back and ask for the dose to me increased ?
Secondly, the receptionists have told me that I can only have my thyroid bloods done one every three months...really ?
Thank you in advance of your hoped for responses, TBH I'm getting a bit worried now, this seems a really big deal, reading through your posts. I lost my hair years ago, I've put on three stones in a year, my joints ache, my throat is sore...what to do ?
