I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 20 years ago after I had my last child. I was prescribed levothyroxine 50mg. Which I have been on up until recently. My dose was only increased once to 75mg a couple years ago because my blood work came back that I was underactive. This past June I began having palpitations, heat intolerance, severe anxiety, fatigue etc. My doctor tells me that i am now Hyper tsh .01 so he says to decrease my levothyroxine to35 mg. Still no better after a couple weeks so he tells me to totally stop my med. It has been 41/2 wks since stopping levo. And my Hyper symptoms are slowly getting better. But I have NEVER been more confused as to why this is happening. The doctor tells me that I could have been over medicated (WHAT 20 YEARS LATER?and he said that maybe I didn't need to be treated all this time because I really didn't have Hypothyroidism, he said something else could have been causing my tsh to be a little high years ago and some people should just be watched instead of being medicated. Just want to add that my b12 is low, vitamin d low. And the fatigue has NEVER gone away. If anyone has been through this or can help me understand, I would appreciate it. Thank you
