i was diagnosed with Graves' disease some 6 years ago, 3 years ago I I was given radioactive iodine. I am now underactive and have been signed back to my GP from the endocrinologist. However, They cannot get my medication right, the GP says I must stay at the lower end of normal but I feel so tired, have cramps in my legs, they feel like lead weights, I am constantly putting on weight yet eating less, I have random bruises mostly on my legs. All my life (I'm 54) I've had good energy levels, not buzzing but plenty of stamina, and although I've had to work at it I've kept a good weight. My dose is 100 daily, my GP is not helpful in helping me feel better and obviously I don't won't to be too high again. I have been taking 125 on a weds and sun, my latest blood test still shows lower end of normal and I still feel rubbish. I'm going to try 125 mon, weds, fri and see what happens - does anyone else take their meds in this way? Have also started to think I am intolerant to bread and a few other things and am seeing a kinesiology later this week to see if they can identify what.
