I was self medicating on t3 from Mexico under Dr.P. My G.P. agreed to prescribe if my Endo' was in agreement. My Endo' said yes. I am on 40 mcg T3 following thyroid removal in 2003. It is a slow slog but things are improving. However, I have had high cholesterol, and have noticeable yellow deposits under each eye (xanthelasmata). My cholesterol is coming down, but the yellow deposits remain.
I have a G.P. appointment on Thursday a.m. because I am worried about the burning in my chest, the ache in my left shoulder. My sternum is painful to press. I have had these symptoms from time to time and then they go again. I know that xanthelasmata is connected to heart disease, but am a bit worried to see my G.P. on Thursday in case he takes me off the T3, as I have heard that doctors are always wary of the heart/t3 connection. I would rather ignore the burning than have my t3 taken away. Does anyone have an opinion, I really am quite anxious to know what to do before Thursday please?
