I wonder if I could have some help with this,
I was feeling a bit unwell, with tiredness, constipation and felt achy, so had my bloods done via Blue Horizon end of June and the results were:
T3 3.6. (3.1-6.8
T4 13.1 (12-22)
TSH 2.5 (.27-4.2)
Beginning of July I had a week of palpitations, feeling panicky and unable to sleep, as I was due to see consultant I thought I could discuss above results and I was sure he would say I need an increase. He wanted to do his own test which were
T3 4.2 (3.1-6.8)
TSH 1.6 (.3-6)
T4 16.1 (7.5-21)
So he said results are normal and I don't need the T3 I was prescribed in January. And to carry on with 25/50mcgs alternate days. The problem is I've had this happen in the past where it gets low and then the thyroid comes back to life and I get a surge of too much hormone.
I have reduced to 25mcgs daily as I feel hyper even after taking 50mcgs.
I am thinking about coming off thyroxine altogether and see if my gland settles on its own and then maybe just taking T3 in small doses.
I've asked this before but can anyone tell me their experiences about how long it took for these attacks to stop?
