I am newly diagnosed hypo.[ end of Jan.] I have always felt I had problems with metabolismI am 65 so started on 25 levo I couldn't tolerate it.felt really exausted, couldn't even lift my arms and as if I had a cold starting but the worst thing was sudden growth of hairs on upper lip and chin.I have always had problems with unwanted hair but it had all been cleared with electrolysis.I found an article on line that gives a connection between levo and hirsutism but long term use [6months] The Dr took me off it and said wait and see if cold develops.It came out aweek later. He then said give it a month and we will run a few blood tests -had them 28 March.My own GP is on holiday so saw locum today with another chest infection who said I am not hypo, even though on21 Jan my T4 =10.3 and TSH =9.4 [range .35-5.50 I have another 30+ results so you can see why I am looking for a short cut . I am hoping I can get an appointment next Monday so need to know what to ask? many thanks for your help.
