Hello everyone. I’ve been recently diagnosed in September 2017 and started off with a TSH of 8.12. I got on levo @ 50 mcg and my TSH decreased to 1.66. I’m still having symtoms and got levo increased to 75 mcg in late November. I’m experiencing increased memory loss and wonder if this will subside? I feel like I sometimes remember less stuff than I did before I got in meds. I can have conversations with folks and a week later forget that I had them or have a hard time remembering details. I also have trouble concentrating. No matter how hard I try to pay attention and repeat what people say in my head, I’ll draw blanks when I get asked something pertinent to the discussion we had. It’s affecting me at work...I’ve heard “remember, we talked about this?” A couple times. It’s embarrassing and frustrating. I do have some lucid moments.
Besides notifying my doctor and carrying a notebook with me everywhere I go, i don’t know what to do, any suggestions? I do update my doc by email every month when I get my blood tests but it seems like it’s all status quo and the focus is just to decrease TSH.
