I saw my endo yesterday and i've been having some problems with my TSH level since October. The TSH has been going up and down, one month normal 1.40 range .045-4.50 then the next 4.41 and the next 1.70 and the next 5.40. So we have changed meds for the past 3 months I'm taking unithroid, last month he decide to alternate .75 one day .50 the next, well this sent the TSH to 10. He said he did this because my anxiety was so high he wanted to see if the anxiety would go down and it did some. He said he wasn't worried about the 10 number becasue he knew it would go up from the 5.40 last month, at that time I was on.75 unithroid every day. Now he has me going up slowly, .75 4 days a week and .50 three day, for 2 weeks then .75 5 days and week and .50 2 days a week for the ramaining 4 weeks then retest. I'm curious has anyone else been thru this with the TSH flucuating like this. He thinks it was because of the steriod injections I had for 4 weeks and it caused the levels to go crazy and the anxiety to sky rocket. I've also been having dizziness since july, i feel like i'm rocking or swaying all day wether i'm sitting, standing, laying down or walking. I also feel it when I bend forward. I had testing for that this week also and the ENT says its vestibular dysfuction and i have to start therapy for it. Does anyone else have this?
Anther thing i'm had in the past 3 weeks, I don't know if it has anything to do with the alternating meds for the month and the dosage being so much lower than normal, but my left shoulder and arm ache alot.
If you have any help i would appreciate it.
