Hi to everyone.
Have just started Erfa 10 days ago, I take half a grain and I feel terrible. My symptoms seemed to have ramped up significanlty. My private doc said I was to stay on this dose for a month and then he would increase the dose. I feel so, so spaced out. Totally detached from everything. My balance problems are worse than ever and my legs feel like they have done a marathon every day.They feel like jelly. Am so very frightened that these symptoms are something else.I cant beleive that my thyroid can make me feel so ill considering the highest my TSH has ever been was 6.76.I have tested positive for thyroglobulin anti/b. though.
My main question is regarding a result I had when I was taking 25/50 mcg levo (which gave me awful headaches). The endo was not worried with me having the following result although I admit to stopping taking meds 4 days before the test - could not tolerate the headaches any more.
TSH 5.49 (0.35 -5) FT4 11 (7-20) FT3 5.5(3.3-5.3)
The endo said it did not matter that the FT4 was low as I had enough FT3. Is that the case? Would a higher FT4 actually make me feel any better.Have pondered this in case I have to go back to levo. Having plenty of FT3 certainly did not make me feel well.
I do hope I have made sense, am so spaced out its hard to string words together.
