Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

No, that is not a mis-type. Just had the blood work done. Has anyone seen levels like this? (TSH 110.52) I came off my synthroid (gradually) and this is what happened.
I have one doctor telling me I should stay on it forever and another telling me it's (the synthroid) just masking an underlying problem and to get to the problem, I need to be off! I'm really confused!
Thanks for any input.

GULP! and WOW! I've never seen a TSH THAT high. A doctor said, "to get to the problem you need to be off" did he mean off Synthroid (thyroid meds) totally? Well, I'm new to all this so I don't know what to tell you, but there are folks on here who will know. Just wanted to say "welcome" to the board, and hope you can get well soon. Personally, I don't know how you are making it.........I'd have run mad by now with a TSH like that. God bless you.
