Hi, I'm taking 100mcg of thyroxine daily. Blood tests (twice) have both revealed high levels of both Tsh and T4. GP seems to be confused!!!! They have lowered my thyroxine from 100mcg to 75mcg daily and now back up to 100mcg daily. I'm not sleeping very well, really painful joints although I am also currently on co codamol 50/100mg, Gabapentin 400mg and Diclofenac 50mg all 3 times a day. Does anyone else suffer with both of these high levels and what if anything was done. GP has said that when I get checked again in 6/8 weeks if levels are still high I will be referred to a specialist. Yes, the thought of another probably 6 months of feeling like this is so daunting. I'm just so confused that 3 different GPs in my practice are as confused as I am!!!!
Hopefully someone out there will have had the same symptoms and be able to give me some reassurance. Thanks in advance
