Most UK docs use 5 as there number but in US they use 0.3 to 3. So people can have thyroid problems but be in the 5 range which for me still causes a lot of tiredness.

When i lived in the uk i constantly told my doc that i was not getting enough thyroxin.....i was on 100mg then.
last yr i moved to france and after my first blood test I was immediately put up to 112mg ; i have been very closely monitored here and this summer had a dip ( normal apparently in hot climates as the sun means you absorb more vit E and so need more thyroxin to process it) I am now on 125mg and feel really non hypo for the first time in yrs!! 8)

Hi I have had Hashimotos thyroiditis for a number of years and yes a lot of the symptoms are very similar---extreme exhaustion I recall being worst! I'm on 200mcgs thyroxine and still don't feel as I did before this all started.
I had a major op about 10 years ago and haemorrhged (for life of me can't remember how to spell it!!) nearly lost my life. However I always question if all my problems stated then. Perhaps the trauma to my body kicked of something??

:crazy: GOOD HEAVENS ABOVE !!!! I have just been looking through my previous postings and come accross this topic which I started way back in 2005. I just hadn't realised how long ago my thyroid problem was first diagnosed. If you have looked at my rant in the soundproof boothtoday you will know what I am on about. Does anyone else loose track of time. I certainly do. Since first posting on this forum my daughters have grown up and I now have grandchildren. OH NO I'M GETTING OLD lol :lol: :lol: ............pauline
