Hi all, I am very new to this diagnosis however suspect it was going on much longer than I realized. I would have "down" week/months and would go to the doctor, have bloods done, only to be told I was fine. This happened 2/3 times, fast forward to 6 months ago and FINALLY a doctor mention I had 'subclinical hypothyroid" but in fact when she looked back at all my other results, everytime I got a blood test it had showed this but no other doctor had mentioned it?
Anyway she decided to treat me on a really small dose of thyroxine (25mg) and I've been on this for about 4 months now. I had a follow up blood test 6 weeks after starting and they said my levels were at normal again and to continue that dose. I have been feeling really good since starting it and energy levels have increased. However, the last two weeks I have been a wreck and feeling all the symptoms I use to have before starting- I guess my question is today - has anyone found they initially were good on the medicated dose but then had to up it at a later date? I am not meant to go for another review for a bit but not sure if I should go and chat to them about how I am feeling?
THank you in advance for any of your advice.
