OK a slight exaggeration but this flaming Thyroid rubbish lulls you into a false sense of security whereby you are trundling along feeling reasonably OK when BAM - it creeps up on you and gets you from a different direction. I must admit, since finding out I had Hashi's , one of the things I dreaded was becoming depressed. I am one of life's glass half full people and yet the past 3 weeks or so, I have found myself waking up at around 2am or so every morning, feeling anxious about nothing in particular but also vaguely depressed. I also found myself feeling really hypo for a day this week, with such a rapid heart beat I started to think I would have a heart attack. As a consequence I didn't take my Levo at all that night (I normally take 75) and then took 25 the following night then 50 last night - apart from the return of a myriad of hot flushes in the last week or so (which had reduced a lot up until then) I feel OK but low. Thing is, do I now try the NDT I bought online or do I start with a T4/T3 combo - I know my B12 is optimum 'cos I had a jab a few days ago (and as I am in France I got double the dose I get in the UK as that is the standard here). Of course I could always just mainline Gin! Hmmm
