About a month and a half ago my TSH was was still high at 6.7 (range 0.27 -4.2) FT4 at 1.36 (range 0.9 -1.7). So the doctor raised my levo from 50 to 75 mcg. Two weeks ago I had my levels checked again. They came back TSH 2.00 and FT4 1.7( same range as above ). I went back to see my endo this morning and said that I am still hypo because of my fatiuge, hair loss, muscle sorness, NO achilles reflexes, cold hands and feet, just feeling of unwellness and he said he would like my TSH lower still. But... for 3 hours after I take my does, I feel speedy, shakey and cannot even tolerate coffee anymore. I feel I am hyper in the morning and hypo in the evening. I have a constant low grade fever and enlarged anterior lymph nodes left side of neck and one at the base of my skull which have been going on for 9 months now straight. Anyway.. my doctor again raised my does to 88mcg. He will not check my FT3. He said it was not important even though I know it is. Does the dose raise sound right even though my FT4 is at the highest end of range? Does it sound like I may have another issue going on besides Hashimoto's? I'm so tired of feeling sick all the time. But not sure where to begin to rule out other causes. I have no idea of other illnesses that may be lingering in my body... I'm beginning to think more than my thyroid is going on. Especially because my doctor said that low grade fever and swollen lymph nodes are not related to Hashimoto's. Any suggestions? Thank you all!
