Ok return of the crazies
So I stopped taking t3 and am now taking magnesium, vit c, b vits, iodine, probiotics, selenium and zinc. I took my temperature and found it is low (35.8 - 36.4 C) despite my feeling too hot all the time?
After finding stuff about raising temps via t3 I figured I would try again, so I attempted twice to begin on miniscule doses every 3 hrs as per the Wilsons protocol.
Every time by day 2 I had a RAGING migraine and heart palpitations. I took potassium...little effect...stopped t3 straight away and back to normal within 24 hrs.
The problem is after reading stuff on here about t3 being the only way to reduce the mucin swelling, I do not know what to do because I can't seem to tolerate even a tiny amount of t3...
My other option is, is it possible to have the myxedema stuff and swollen tongue, poor circulation etc from adrenal fatigue? As in, if I could repair my adrenals, would that all go away? I obviously have adrenal fatigue because I found this list comparing that with hypothyroid and I have symptoms of both.
So I checked that out and discovered DHEA and pregnenolone seem to be the standard for adrenal issues, and mixed opinions over cortisone.
I need vit d3 as well don't I?
Oh and I am upping my protein because I realized it's way too low.
Sorry for this long blah. It's all stumbling around in the dark at the moment.
I want to make the best decisions, I don't know how urgent it is to take drastic actions because I have no actual idea if I have always had thyroid problems, only got them in the last year after my starvation complications or don't even have thyroid problems and just have adrenal problems...?
Any ideas would be mega mega appreciated, thank youuuu!!!
