Hi, I'm strange and my symptoms are strange too
I have 2 questions:
1. I get this weird/awful internal shaking/shivering/vibration that mostly comes on when I drop off to sleep. It can even wake me up in the night. Mostly it is in my main body but sometimes it can be isolated in my neck or ankles. I know it is probably just an illusion and that my organs aren't shaking around but seriously it is a scary feeling I can't ignore that. I haven't been able to pin down the trigger although I wonder if it is connected to food or maybe even the computer. The shaking has been happening for the last 4/5 years no matter what medications I have taken or stopped. It comes on when I am sluggish and when I also feel a bit hyper. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason!
2. My latest results are TSH less than 0.02 - it has been the same for the past few yrs My free T3 is 3.9. Back in Feb 2014 my FT3 was 6.0 when I was taking 125 levothyroxine and 1/2 a T4 - the GP didn't know I was taking the T3 and I stopped taking this in Feb 2014 - maybe this was why the FT3 has dropped to 3.9? I have all the usual symptoms and the weight over the last few months is creeping on again along with aches and feeling very tired.
My GP wants to reduce my thyroxine but I think I need more. I am currently taking 125 levothyroxine for the past 18 months?
