Just wondering if my thyroid levels look ok and that my endo is right in saying I have general anxiety disorder despite my symptoms? Listed below.
Puffy eyes and feet and legs
Legs feeling like jelly
Blood pressure elevated around 130/105
Low heart rate
I was happily on T3 until my endo took me off it in August 2017. Since then my thyroid levels have never stabilised despite the T3 helping and the endo switched me to lactose free levothyroxine which has done nothing but given me upset stomach, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. If I go back to the lactose containing levothyroxine I run the risk of having suboptimal thyroid levels - this was what my endo said at the time and continuing hypothyroid symptoms.
I was diagnosed in 2013, my current dose of levothyroxine is 50mcg and the reason it is this low a dose is because of the acacia in the Teva levothyroxine I have been prescribed. I am also planning to be pregnant.
Any advice about how to proceed next would be welcome, thank you.
