I had a TT in 2013 to avoid the constant fluctuations and dose changes of thyroid medications, but regardless of how many times we find the correct dosage for me, it changes. I get to enjoy it for a short time and then I start feeling symptoms of things changing, have my blood drawn, get the results, and am instructed to change dosages. Then I go through 4-6 weeks of symptoms from the dose change, get my blood tested after 8 weeks, and find that the change took me too far in the OTHER direction. So we change the dose again, and the cycle continues.
I can't think of any reason or find any research as to why I can't hang onto a stable TSH level for more than 2 months. I guess in a few days after my physical my doc will order a free T4, too, but does anyone else have these constant fluctuations? I must be really, REALLY sensitive to medications (not to mention to the symptoms they cause!)
Sheesh - can we catch a break here please?
