i never ever go to the doctors but in 2001 i couldnt ignore my symptoms any more virtually every hypothyroid symptom i went to gp informed him i thought i was hypothyroid
anyway he reluctantly tested me and surprise surprise i was very very hypo he asked me how i was still functioning??
anyway went on lethothyroxine starting at 25 building up in about 6 months felt good but it all went downhill from there after various increases in doses up to 125mcg and still feeling cold and falling asleep he decided my bloods came back showing i had to reduce which he did for 2 occassions back down to 75 then i get a phone call from the practice stating an error was made and i should have increased instead of decreasing dose(i did tell them my symptoms were at there worse again but noone listened )
anyway returned straight back onto 125 bloods taken in dec2012 told again they were ok but recently went to doc as falling asleep cold and fainting asked her for T3 she looked at the previous results and was amazed as they were not normal
tsh was 50 t4 was 0.4 dont know any of the rest she told me she would not consider t3 until my t4 was increased and told me to increase thyroxine again to 150 and see her in 6 weeks fed up feeling ill want to get better any suggestions
