Thyroid and Covid vaccine
I have been hypothyroid for about 15 years. I started out at 125mcg of Levothyroxine (extra 1/2 pill on Sun.) and 2 of the 5mcg of Liothyronine. Then after receiving first two vaccine shots in Feb. 2021, my TSH level dropped to .311. They reduced my dosage but TSH levels kept dropping and I was in full hyperthyroidism, which makes you feel like you are going crazy. I was going in every 3 months and getting tested. Finally in December, they took me off all thyroid medication and my TSH went to 33.395. Started me on 50mcg Levothyroxine. Then had trouble getting my TSH levels down but still having both hypo & hyper effects. All of 2022 my TSH levels were high until August when I caught Covid. I was put on Prednisone because having long term side effects from Covid. In Sept. 2022 my TSH level was 1.407 but I think it was because of the Prednisone. Then Dec. 2022 my TSH was back up to 4.351 so increased Levothyroxine to 75mcg. Then March 2023 my TSH was 3.423, they thought still too high so increased Levothyroxine to 88mcg. Then June 2023 TSH was 1.668, but was still not feeling right. So kept me on 88mcg but none on Sunday. Last month my TSH was 3.060. So now I am back to 50mcg of Levothyroxine plus extra 1/2 tab on Sat & Sun and 5mcg Liothyronine. I think I can tell the difference maybe. But it has been almost three years of feeling horrible. I don't remember what normal feels like.
