    newly diagnosed and confused!

    Hi all, I have a recent diagnosis of hypothyroidism. 2 months ago my TSH was 89, and my GP said it is the highest he's ever known, and ?T4 was 3. Took thyroxine 100mcg for the last 2 months, and today my TSH is 33. Thyroxine was increased to 125, but is this a sufficient dose for my results? Is neck pain/stiffness a symptom? is depression a symptom as well?! thanks for any advice/support x

    Hi Jane1264


    I had TSH of 83 as well few years back and I am somewhere in between 125mcg and 150mcg so yes perhaps this dose may be enough for you or you might need more. You'll have to check your results after 4 weeks again and then increase the dosage. Ideally you want your TSH to be below 2.5
