Hi I have been on T3 only for a few weeks, I am now on 75mcg i have had no improvement in symptoms, in fact the pain is worse, I can hardly walk and my hands are swollen with pain in my shoulders, feet, jaw, throat!! Does it normally get worse before getting better? Has anyone else experienced this?? Does anyone know about the protocol Dr Lowe talks about in his book? I can't afford to buy the book so if anyone knows if this information is anywhere else can they please let me know! Thanks in advance! I have tried Levo and Armour over the years but they never got rid of the symptoms! Since being on T3 my pulse is up from 58 to 80 but I'm still freezing, still in a lot of pain, still lethargic, still no weight loss but for the first time in my life ever I have a bowel movement every day! Every cloud and all that!! Thanks for any help you might have!
