I started T3 in November as I cannot tolerate thyroxine. I have slowly worked up to 40 mcg per day. I seemed to be doing ok with it. More energy and losing weight. I am finding that there are times where I am not doing so good though and think possibly my sex hormones could be contributing to this. I seem to have a lot of ups and downs during my cycle which to be honest I am finding it hard to work out what is going on.
Last month was 30 days and this month is 25 days. I am getting days during the month where I am experiencing a type of extreme morning sickness. I think that I have improved on T3 as my migraine attacks have lessened and I do have more energy. I'm just not sure how to improve these symptoms of high/ low sex hormones as I cannot seem to fathom them out even though I am keeping a diary.
I seem to have bloating and sickness, depression and lethargy on days 3-10, ovulation is now earlier around day 12 with bloating, sickness etc following that and then this month days 19-23 were awful. I had terrible anxiety and jittery. Adrenaline rushes, waves of morning sickness, heart thumping. Every time I took a dose of T3 my heart would hurt. I had to lower the dose for a couple of days. It felt hyper even though my vitals, heart rate, temp and blood pressure were ok. I am wondering if this was the progesterone drop causing adrenal stress. I then got my period on day 25. I am back to normal dose and fine again.
Can anyone help me make sense of what is happening? Thanks in advance.
