I've been diagnosed Hashi for nearly 2 years now and they still can't get my medication levels right! Not that I think it's them doing something wrong but my thyroid is just mental.
When I was diagnosed my level was 20 something.
On 100mcg it went down to 3. something and then I started feeling really bad about 7 months later so went and had another test. I was back up to 14.
Went on 150mcg but was getting heart palpitations at night and feeling quite twitchy. My bloods showed my levels were down to 0.03
So - middle ground 125mcg. Levels at 1.66. Niiiice.
Or Not. 4-5 months later and I feel crappy again. Levels back up to 7.
Am now alternating days between 150 and 125. 3 days in but so so confused as to why it just won't behave. Doc doesn't know why it keeps changing.
Anyone else had similar up - down results after thinking they'd found the right levels? Would quite like to feel normal (well, as normal as one can get with hashis) for more than a few months without having to see the resident vampire =/
