it's been a little while since I posted.
Here is my current update...
I have been taking my thyroid meds for about 4 months now. I was on 75mg Synthroid but it made me go hyper. Before that I was on 50mg and it was not enough- TSH still high.
So my doctor told me now it was finding the balance between the 50 and 75 to find what dosage will work for me.
I decided to average my pills out to taking 68mg. (A combo of FIVE 75mg pills and TWO 50mg pills every week).
I take the pills at the same time and same days every week.
I've been doing this now for about 2 months.
My numbers indicate I am in the range. As well as my Free T3 and T4 levels are fine.
I FEEL LIKE CRAP!!!!!!!!
I don't have energy to exercise... I sleep over 10hours a day, and if I don't I feel tired the whole day. I am still constipated.
I started seeing a NUTRITIONIST a while ago, and I've been eating a very healthy diet as well as exercising 5x/week. NOTHING seems to be working??? My diet is based on losing 2 lbs a week.. and I've been doing it over a month and can't lose a single pound!
Is there anything I can do? I can't increase my dosage anymore- or I'll go hyper again.
Should I ask about adding Cytomel? Even though my numbers are fine??
I really need some suggestions here- I'm beyond frustrated....
