I have just had endo nurse telephone appointment, six weeks after my nhs endo appointment. I have been taking 50 mcg of Levo and 6.24mcg Tiromel per day. I sourced the Tiromel myself after 100mcg of Levo wasnt converting and making me v fatigued etc. My bloods are T4 8.2 (12-22), T3 3.7 (3.1-6.8), TSH 13.3 (0.27-4.2). Endo nurse says my T4 is too low, TSH has gone back up from 9.4 and T3 about the same. She said T3 is not working and I need to raise Levo to 75mcg. They did prescribe me liothyronine 5mcg, but it gave me pounding headache and upset stomach so went back to tiromel. Any comments people? I was thinking I would be raising T3 or going to T3 only as it had seemed to work, and what was the point in taking t4 if my body wasn't processing it.
Recent weeks I've started getting v hot, v bad headaches every day, shallow breathing and v high anxiety. Endo nurse says this is due to T4 being too low.
