  • Please clarify. Are you on thyroxine (T4) or T3??? or both?

  • no not on either

  • Your post says you are on Thyroxine which is T4 but your reply to Heloise says you aren't on anything ?

    If you are on Thyroxine then it may be you are changing dose to quickly, there isn't enough time for your body to catch up with the new dose and having a blood test too soon will just show your body is confused and still trying to stabilise. It takes me 12 weeks to stabilise after a dose change, you just have to give it time.

  • sorry was confused,its had over a year still hasnt sorted its self out,still feeling like pulling my hair out,even my nails arent growing.
