I always get heart palpitations when my dosage is raised, as my body gets used to the stronger amount. But they usually go away after two weeks, so I've just figured that that was a normal reaction. I'm curious to see if others have the same reaction to upped dosages? To answer your question more specifically, the only thing I can think of is maybe your doc wants to up your dosage to get your TSH on the low end, instead of the high end, for pregnancy. I can't say for sure, since I developed thyroid disease AFTER pregnancy. You could request a copy of your most recent bloodwork results and check your levels. I am so sorry that you had to go through a miscarriage, and I hope that you will be able to get the answers you need for a healthy pregnancy!
I got my results from my regular doctor. They were not done till a month after the miscarriage. they were 1.9 but she just checked tsh nothing else. I think my old doctor checked more. (would have to find my lab copies first to double check) I kind of think I might need a doctor who knows more about thyroids than the doctor I have now does.
Still kind of worried about the ob/gyn doctor upping the dosage if I get pregnant again. They didn't do that for the last pregnancy. (but I had a different ob then)
My RE auto upped mine with Oliver when I was 6w and I had horrid heart palps. My OB told me to go back on my reg dose (he's VERY smart when it comes to thyroid management). My levels were pretty steady my whole pg and never needed any adjustments. I would err on the side of caution and ask for a blood draw before auto upping them.
