Can Low TSH Levels Cause Morning Sickness, Cramping, Abdominal Pain, Lightheadedness And Chills?
I have had 2 CT scans, colonoscopy, vaginal and abdominal ultra sound and nuclear scan on my thyroid. Autoimmune thyroiditis. I have gone gluten, dairy, corn, soy and nut free. A massive amount of blood testing everything seems fine. I am waiting for an appointment to see a gastroenterologist.
About levothyroxine dose adjustment;
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.
The symptoms of underactive thyroid are not specific and in our daily practice, it is very difficult to adjust the dose of levothyroxine in order to improve the symptoms and the hormonal balance.
For your age, the TSH level is recommended to be maintained up to 6.4 mUi/ml.
So, if you feel clinically ok with 50 mcg and the TSH is up to 6.4, the risk of side effects is very low.
When you change the dose of levothyroxine, 6 weeks after you should check TSH level in order to confirm that the dose is right.
Hope the information will help.
