Has anyone else experienced extreme unexplainable swings in your TSH levels? mine went from less than 1 in July to 28 in September. The only change in medication was I went back on birth control and was treated for an ulcer.

      I’ve always have had crazy changes, some of it is just my thryiod being odd, but once I was on a supplement, I think it was magnesium. It got my levels up un the 70s

        @otherworldgirl but i just saw you didnt have a med change. My thyroid does do this a lot tho.

      Was the birth control prescribed by the same doctor/do they know about it? I'm not positive but I do think that could affect it. Birth control is hormones.

        @seppytem No, the birth control wasn't prescribed by the same doctor. But yes, she knew about it and they knew going back on it would raise my TSH. That's why she didn't adjust my thyroid meds, in July, despite the low levels. She thought the change would bring it back to normal. She can't explain why my TSH changed as much as it did.
