I have been self medicating with Levo (dosage 150). I have posted my blood results earlier on here but for completeness they were/ are:-
TSh - 0.06 (0.27-4.2)
T4- 20.4 (12-0-22.0)
T3- 5.1 (3.1-6.8)
So my blood results look OK right?
Why is it then I am feeling pain? Painful heels (struggling to walk) painful knees and one calf muscle is killing me! My hands hurt and cannot close my hands. What is the problem?
Will reducing levo and introducing T3 solve this problem and with the added bonus of perhaps losing some weight? If I were to reduce levo how much should I reduce by and how much T3 should I be adding?
I have been on levo for some time (diagnosed with Graves then RAI) with varying dosages... No level of dosage has so far been satisfactory. I will admit I am a little impatient but I want to feel how I used to feel .....maybe that feeling is a long and distant memory but one can only try try try.
Thanks for any responses.
