I started Nature-Throid in May. I have been on 2.5 grain for 2 weeks now. Tried increasing to 3 grains 2 days ago but got chest pains so went back to 2.5. But I'm still feeling quite bad. Very tired and sleepy, lack of motivation, hair loss, irritable, head aches (rarely got them in the past).
When I was on 2 grains a month ago (2 months into ndt) I did blood test and the results were:
TSH - 19,30 (0.27 - 4,2)
FT3 - 2,42 (2 - 4,4)
FT4 - 0,78 (0,93 - 1,7)
TPO - 345,9 (0 -34)
My iron, ferritin, B12 and vit D were ok, and I'm still supplementing. Also supplementing adrenals.
I didn't feel great when I had my tests done, but now I'm feeling even worse, day by day. I have Hashimoto's.
Could it be I don't do well on NDT and need T4 + T3? Are there many people who can't tolerate it?
I have endo appointment at the end of October, but not sure what to do before then as I can't go feeling like that for 3 more months! Should I change back to T4?
