Can anyone tell me what's going on.
I have been put back onto levothyroxine as the endo I saw said my t3 was too high at 3.8.
I had previously been on nature thyroid and when I first saw this new endo my t3 had been 5.2 in April. 4.00 in May. He saw these results and kept me on the NDT.
Then in mid June after another round of blood tests ( was still on NDT) he phoned me and said I had to go onto levo 100mcgs as t3 was too high!!!!
I've been feeling increasingly bad over last 12 weeks.
Started when I stopped a beta blocker (just before I had to change to levo - I changed to levo two weeks after stopping the beta blocker)
Anyway. Long story short......... I now feel chills running all up and down my body when sitting still. I'll then sometimes get a hot flush (I'm at least 13 years post menopause)
When I stand to get up my legs feel like jelly, all weak and wobbly.
If I exert myself in the slightest I get the sweats. My legs and arms were going weak etc.
I now find my legs and arms feel weird all the time now. When I wake up in the night I can feel they are like they don't belong to me.... Weak but with a numb heavy feeling.
I go to bed and even snuggled under the duvet I get these cold chills running up and down me.
I am finding it really hard to get off to sleep now. I wake up in the mornings and all these physical things start all over again.
The 2 grains nature throid I was on was equivalent to 130mcgs levo and hes dropped to 100mcgs
My results are as follows
T3 3 (2.79-5.57)
Can someone please tell what the devil has happened to me since changing over????
I've been on other thyroid forums and getting told my t3 is too low.
I am desperate and can't stand this anymore.
I was very active. Had an active job which I love but have been off sick since mid June due to all this.
My morning temp is 36.4 and I've just done it again now and it's 36.8.
Oh I forgot to say..... My previous endo put me on combo first, then straight t3 and then nature throid. Her reason for this was because when u first saw her I had tsh 5.28 t4 was 24 over range (top being 19) and t3 was 2.9 so said nit converting.
Do you think this could be happening again?
Never felt symptoms like this in my life
