Like many of you out there I was going through a very difficult time about 2 weeks ago; that's when I joined the forum and boy I'm glad I did. I had already booked an appt with my GP; I increased my med myself - increased it by 25 mcg - I'm prescribed alternate 100 and 125 mcg and decided I would take 125 daily. At the same time I read about taking the medication at night and I swapped. A week later I started to feel better and this morning saw the doctor and explained what I did and why - she was very understanding thought I self managed my condition very well and prescribed some Levo 25 mcg to top up. The aches and pains have diminished - ankle feels better and headaches gone; constipation better as well as less tired. Reading the blogs and comments from you all gave me the confidence to tell the doctor that I'm the expert and not them. I was ready to challenge her but didn't have to.
So a BIG THANK YOU to all out there.
