I am new to this site and looking forward to any help that comes my way.
On T3/T4 after 3 years illness because of high dose Thyroxine which was not converting properly. Thyroidectomy for follicular thyroid cancer June 2012. Given 60 mg T3 between op and post-treatment scan. Never felt better. Problems began when put on high dose thyroxine.
Now on 20 mcg T3 and 75 mcg Levothyroxine. Migraines, fibromyalgia much improved but I have semi 'crashes'. Feel that thyroxine doesn't suit me. Trying to go T3 only but Endo reluctant.
Main query: Since coming off high dose Thyroxine (200 mcg - FT4 was 44) and starting T3/T4 (6 weeks ago) have put on 7 lb (just on my stomach - not generalised - look very pregnant) and have what I believe are hypo symptoms such as hair loss and constipation. Last bloods 3 weeks ago - TSH <0.5, FT3 6 (top of range 6.8 and FT4 17 (top of range 22)
Main question - can you have suppressed TSH and hypo symptoms? Any other info welcome.
