Sorry its been a while...im still rushed off my feet.
Thought id post an update..... Started t3 in January this year and returned to work, although not fixed completely, in March. I managed to raise my dose to 75mcg, felt ok but had a background fatigue and a few minor symptoms. Saw Dr P in September who said my adrenal function was almost normal and I was showing much improvement , however still hypoT and we needed to improve my cognitive function as memory is very poor .
The options were to either raise T3, stay on current dose but add in nutri thyroid or commence Armour. I tried raising the t3 by 12.5 mcg and after a while started to experience cardiac symptoms...quite uncomfy. I dropped the dose again to 75 and the cardiac issue disappeared and am symptomatic again with fatigue, very emotional, brittle nails, weight gain (after losing a stone) and very poor cognitive functioning and these are worsening with the weather. The last few shifts at work there has been tears again...over nothing much really...mainly fear of what others think, of my what seem like endless questions , which I really should know the answers to and this worsens with fatigue. Its making me feel very vulnerable. Both hubby and my manager have noticed a sharp decline in my health so its not just me.
I think its time to try armour but Dr P failed to mention where to get it from and how much it is. I know you cannot post the answer on the forum but if someone could enlighten me via pm id muchly appreciate it and if anyone has any advice regarding starting out on armour after t3. Thank you all.......and stay warm!
