The Crap Whisperer
So, I have been being treated for hypo since early April. Started out at 5.5 and took 50mcg of levothyroxin for 30 days. After another blood test I was down to 3.125. Still feeling crappy and asked for a higher dose - the doc obliged and bumped me to 75mcg. I've been on that for 30 days now and have seen marked improvement. Got another blood test yesterday and I'm down to 2.502.
My question is - I have seen improvement but I'm still losing gobs of hair daily, my monthly womanly stuff is still messed up (bloating and spotting and cramping) even though I'm on the pill, and I am still struggling with constipation. I am not nearly as exhausted and the mood swings have improved but are still there. If I stay on the current dose is it likely that I would see more improvement over the next 3-6 weeks? Or should I push for a higher dose?
My BF mentioned that in cancer situations it takes your hair 3-6 weeks to react to the chemo treatments...is it similar with thyroid stuff? I'm just not sure what to do.
Being the best tiny spec that I can be!
