I'm on 50 mcg levothyroxine. Started taking medicine on Aug 1st 2013. Tsh 4.75. Moved to another state and had to find new Doctor. Still taking same dose med. Found new Doctor in California and had my labs taken again on Feb 5th 2014. TSH higher now is 4.82 after 6 months. Humm?? Doc also checked my Vitamin D. Was seriously low. Lab number was 11. Should be at least 30 to 50. Started me on 50,000 iu once a week for 12 weeks. Went back to Doctor after I completed Vitamin D and had labs again. TSH had dropped to 1.23 and Vitamin D went up to 34. Now I'm thinking theres some kind of corralation between my Thyroid and Vitamin D. Would my TSH have been normal if I hadn't been so vitamin d deficient? Now with my TSH at 1.23 I have symptoms like being jittery and shaking hands and shaking inside. I feel like I'm going 180 miles an hour. My Doctor told me to stay on my dose 50 mcg and I now take 2000 iu of Vitamin D daily. I have to take a xanax to try to get calmed down. I don't like that. Is my TSH to low. Should I self medicate down to .25 mcg of Thyroxine on my own? Is it just a fluke that finding my Vitamin D deficiency and correcting it really have dropped my TSH? I would appreciate it to here from anyone who may have experienced this. Please.
