My TSH levels are 31. Currently I am on Eltroxin 100. Should I reduce my eltroxin dosage?

Hi doc, I'm 35 and my TSH levels are .31. Currently I'm on Eltroxin 100. Should I reduce my eltroxin dosage? Plz suggest. Earlier when I was on Eltroxin 150, I started developing a pain in my breasts when I touch it, but after redusing the dosage to 100. I was fine. Now the same thing is happening.... a very slight pain in my breasts when I accidentally touch it. I'd apprecaite it if you could give me suggestions. I apprecaite your time. Thank you. :)

Thanks for query,
Your report of TSH is not clear,if it is 0.31 then you may reduce the dose after consulting your doctor.
Do not reduce by yourself.
Ok and bye.

Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi..., the TSH level is mildly elevated... The Eltroxin is not related to the pain in the breast..
you need to be clinically examined and evaluated to find the cause of pain int the breast,
to rule out the infections of breast.. consult a surgeon...
Hope I have answered your question..
