I am new to the whole “hypo” thing as I just had RAI three months ago and just went hypo recently but I can tell you that everybody is different. Some people need higher TSH levels to feel normal while others may want to be on the low side. I know that when I was still hyper and my “T” levels went up just a little it was enough to make me feel hyper although the endo said it was within normal range.
The important thing is to find a doctor who will listen to you and let you determine what levels feel best for you. I think you’ll see the “warriors” will emphasize that again and again.
Good luck in getting to feeling back to normal again.
my tsh done friday was 2.16 —my t4 was 10.4 this is what the dr ordered as i have been on replacement for quite a while…….. the last test i had done during the winter was 2.56 and my t4 was around the same………… i asked this winter to go up from .125 to .138 because i was still feeling hypo….and i still am but while taking l38 daily i went a little wired called him and went alternating every other…..still wired so i went back to 125 for the past month or more.. The thing is is that i am still having hypo like symptoms.. fatigue,headache==dull pressure above the eyes,horseish voice, achey muscles……WHAT WOULD YOU SUGGEST?????? HAS ANYONE ELSE STILL FELT THIS WAY AT THESE LEVELS?? I am wondering if my 90 day perscription that i am almost out of is running out of potency? or maybe i need to throw in a .138 every now and then???? HELP thanks guys!!!!!
