have you ever or would you ever consider self-medicating?
so here's the deal...i was diagnosed w/ Hashi's back in August, started on 100mcg levothyroxine, started to feel hyper so went down to 88mcg, then doc lowered me to 50mcg. i went to see him a week or so ago b/c all my hypo symptoms are coming back (fatigue, weight gain, muscle pain, no libido, etc.). i asked if i could increase to 75mcg. he said something else was probably causing the symptoms (?!) but did new blood work. in the new blood work my TSH was 1.97 my free T4 was .09 (bottom of the range being .08). my TGAb is over 1000. i thought after seeing this he would raise my to 75mcg but no, he said stay at 50mcg.
so i think i'll search for a new doc, but in the meantime, i could easily raise to 75mcg myself b/c i have so 100's left. do you think that's a crazy idea?!
thanks for reading,
