New dosage; strange symptoms

On my recent blood test, my TSH was nearly 2 points lower than it was five weeks previous (from 6.06-4.12). I was placed on double dosage, with no hesitation. I have now been on 50 mcg, for just over a week. I have noticed some slight increase-certainly the sensation-in swelling in feet and hands. My blood pressure is good, and my kidney function, which also is a source of some concern, has not sent up any red flags for my pcp. I am still feeling myself tired, although not quite as much as when I first started Synthroid. The fatigue comes and goes throughout the day, and might even seem to hit me in waves, especially after sexual intimacy with my wife, which has been of considerable frustration for me.

Re: New dosage; strange symptoms

Unfortunately the meds titrating process takes time and symptoms might wax and wane, some get worse, some better, new ones appear and so on. hang there things will get better. A week is still way to soon, although for me it's the time that adjusting symptoms are to start, again those are temporary. 50 mcg is still a small dosage too so likely you might need another increase at next testing.

in the meantime hang in there!
