I'm a 21 year old female and live in the US. I was diagnosed with hashimotos when I was 6 years old and haven't had normal levels since. I switched to a new GP last year and was taking 62mcg of levothyroxine. When I had my levels checked my TSH was 11.82. He bumped up my meds to 88mcg or something similar and I was tested a few months later. My TSH was then a 8.6 and I thought I was heading in the right direction. He bumped up my meds to 100mcg. I just got my bloodwork done last week and my TSH came back at a new high of 16.55!! What the heck? This is not ok. I'm so frustrated....
Also my t4 was normal and he didn't check my t3...
I do have symptoms but I've had them for so long they kind of feel normal... I'm tired all the time, I'm always freezing, thinning hair, brain fog, and low energy in general. I'm a college athlete and need to be healthy to perform at my best! My coach doesn't understand it... I just look lazy and tired (not that I've
explained it to him lol). I'm in class for the first half of my day, then practice for the rest. Practice is to 3 hours a day six days a week of intense training. By the time I get home I literally just want to pass out but then I'm up all night doing homework. This whole thyroid thing is making this schedule near impossible. Sorry for the rant I'm just really frustrated.
Any ideas on why my thyroid won't work right? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
