| | Elevated TSH, but HYPER symptoms
I have been taking Synthroid for 20 years. I am 27 now and have never had any problems with it. About 6 weeks ago, I went in because I was so tired all the time and just didn't feel right. They checked my TSH levels and I guess they were high because they increased my dosage from 125 mcg to 150 mcg. I just went in for my 6 week checkup and my TSH was 5.799. They wanted to increase my dosage again to 175 mcg, but I don't feel like I should because in that 6 week period, have been feeling jittery off and on, I have starting sweating excessively at night (wet t-shirt and hair in the morning), and I completely missed my period. I have never missed a period since I stated the pill for regularity at 17. Also, I have noticed that I am weaker when I workout and can't finish as many sets as I could 3 weeks ago. All of these are symptoms of being HYPER, correct? Can anyone tell me why my TSH is elevated but I feel like I am taking too much Synthroid?
I also started Lopid for my high triglycerides and cholesterol 6 weeks ago too! Don't know if that has any effect on anything or not?
