I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid in early March and put straight on to a dose of 100mcg of Levothyroxin. The blood tests also revealed that I was borderline anaemic.
Last week, at my latest review (based on blood tests and how I feel) the last bloods showed that the TSH score had come down from 7.41 to 1.3 and the doc told me that my target should be 0.2-0.3. He increased my Levothryoxin dose to 150 mcg. However my anaemia seems to have got worse and he is investigating that at the moment (stool sample). I have diverticulosis and seem to have been losing a lot of blood lately, hence this investigation.
The thing is I feel really lousy - the symptoms seems to have come back with a vengeance and I feel as if I am going backwards.
Is this normal and to be expected? Can anyone explain why it's happening? Have other people had problems with anaemia as well as the hypothroidism?
Thanks for reading.
