Appreciate this maybe stupid thing to do but I took it upon my self to reduce my thyroxine by 25mg to 50mg (from 75mg)
It was an attempt to see whether change in my diet and more exercise could improve my thuroid function - never felt i needed an increase in dosage
After about a week on reduced dosage I had a stomach ache which I have not been able to shake off - looser stools and then over last few days felt tired.
After the last couple of days I have gone back to taking 75mg and also have an appointment for a blood test
Is stomach ache a sign of reduced dosage meaning, do I need the higher dose or is my body just adjusting? So much conflicting information online and gp not a good listener.
Feel so depressed about my thyroid and would love to feel normal.
Does anyone relate?
