Hi all. The girls are staying at Grandma's this week and so with a little time on my hands I decided to go for a run. Nothing too big, just a couple of times around the park - around 4km. Nice and gently, took me nearly 25 minutes. This is the kind of thing I used to do every day (and lots more too...) some years ago, even before being treated (I take 150 mcg levothyroxine and tons of vitamins - separately just like you should). I felt great immediately afterwards. However, within about 30 minutes I had to lie down and needed sugar/food desperately - so I had lots of fish and salad, and a home made banana muffin made with coconut oil. I then got a migraine and went to bed early. I got up this morning after nearly 10 hours in bed feeling groggy, disorientated, starving, and generally like I'd been hit by a bus. Now at work and feeling a bit shaky but a lot better - normally a migraine stay with me for 3 days, so this was definitely related to the exercise.
I've been plodding along with T4 and thinking I'm doing OK, and am now thinking it may be time to take matters into my own hands and obtain some T3 to supplement it as I know my (private) endo will not prescribe it for me. Has anyone had experience of exercise tolerance improving after taking a combination of T4/T3? This would help me to work out if I should try it.
