Re: back again with some concerns
Hi little. Good to have you back, but wish things were going better for you. Did you do anything to make the antibodies go away? (Selenium, Maca, etc.) I agree with Treefrog, maybe it is time for a trial stoppage, although it sounds like you feel ill no matter which direction your meds are changed (increased or decreased). Perhaps if you stop, and don't feel worse at the end of the month, you can investigate other options.
There's a person posting to this Board by the name of "axsai" who is going through somewhat similar problems -- gets very ill with dosage changes, can't tolerate or is allergic to most of the thyroid meds out there.... Although her problem seems to be the reverse of yours: she's hypo and isn't absorbing thyroid meds (currently taking 0.2mg of Levoxyl, TWICE a day, and still extremely hypothyroid). Anyway, thought you two might have some strategical ideas to compare and discuss that could help each other.
Maybe your illness is due to other autoimmune issues (fatigued adrenals, chronic fatigue, etc.). Have you tried to see a holistic practioner who can help bolster your energy levels? There's a lot of quackery out there for this sort of thing, but some of it is good stuff. I've successfully used supplements like Prime One and Brekhman's Gold for chronic fatigue when nothing else worked. It's mostly ginseng and other "warming" herbs, but it got me out of bed (long before my thyroid disease was diagnosed).
Let us know what happens. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wave.gif">
