Hello I am 72 have had hypothyroidism since my early 40s. For many years I was on 125mg. I moved house 3 years ago and my doctor is 2017/18 after a routine yearly blood test reduced my dose to 100 as my blood test was low andjust out of range. Fast forward to now I now have a lot of health problems and therefore symptoms. Recently diagnosed with mild fibromyalgia have been having itchy skin and feeling hot at times. These are also Fibromyalgia symptoms. My blood test in October was 0,6 (range used was 0.5 to 5 I believe). For the last 2 years it has been 1. something. The only thing I can think of is that I now take my levothyroxine when I wake and then have a shower then take other medication and have breakfast around an hour later. Perhaps the levothyroxine is being better absorbed. My gp said the level was ok as still in range. Would you get symptoms at this level do you think. Any suggestions welcome.
