Hello lovely people
I am a little confused and wondering if any of you could figure out what is going on with me.
I have experienced many improvements with my adrenal health and general wellbeing after taking many suggested, good quality supplements including B12 injections. After getting a little stronger on these supplements I decided to try T3 as I'm convinced my thyroid is under-active,initially on the T3 I really felt good and I upped the dosage very slowly until I was on 50 micrograms but after a couple of weeks I kind of flattened out and started to feel pretty rubbish again but was a little worried about taking more T3 as I know it's potent stuff and don't understand enough about and was worried about taking too much even though I didn't have any hyper symptoms, though I was having the odd hot flush which didn't bother me.
My body odour returned to normal after years of smelling strange and not right, and my energy level was improved until the effect seemed to level out as though it wasn't doing anything etc, so it must have been doing some good to start with.
Anyway, after worrying about taking more T3, I decided to try NDT, and bought some nature-throid - 2 grain tablets. I started on a whole 2 grain tablet immediately and did feel some benefits but it wasn't overwhelming as I'd have expected after reading other people's accounts ..... and then I upped it to 2 and a half and eventually 2 x 2 grain tablets a day. I am nearly at the end of the bottle and just wondering if I should bother buying them again as I'm still sleeping an awful lot and still suffering from extreme muscle fatigue, nothing seems to help the muscle fatigue and it is one of the symptoms that upsets me the most asI can't do all sorts of things I would like to do, I can't even play my violin which I used to play in every spare minute in the past, but my muscles just seize up within minutes nowadays. I was hoping thyroid medicine would help but it doesn't appear to.
My confusion is about what sort of thyroid problem I might be suffering from. Maybe my thyroid isn't the problem? But if that was the case, wouldn't I suffer from hyper symptoms on the T3 and NDT? I can't figure out what's going on and wonder if anyone on this forum has experienced anything similar and could possibly point me in the right direction?
