I am currently self medicating with 4 grain NDT ( I was on 125mg of levothyroxine and 20mg of t3) as my doctor has left me feeling symptoms. I have requested to my doctor to do full thyroid test and I have only recieved my TSH and T4 results.I dont know what my t3 results are either. So my TSH is 0.05 and my t4 is 12.2. the normal range for my tsh is 0.20 to 5.00 and my normal range for t4 is 9.0-21.0. I feel exhausted, i am over sleeping, i feel depressed, suicidal, unable to go out and do stuff without feeling like i need to sleep. i cant exercise as i dont have the energy to do so i just feel completely f(((((ked!!!!! I lost a stone and a half on the t3 and t4 combo. I was a size 14 2 years ago and now i am a size 22. i miss my size 14 figure, my face and body looks swollen and its horrible. i look ugly as hell! i suffer from myxedema ( hypothyroidism). how the hell do i get rid of the excess weight? I spoke to my doctor about prescribing pig thyroid medicine and he said he would do it for me but he is on holiday for a month. Other doctors will not prescribe it. what do i do? do i increase the meds myself?
