Ok so I have been experimenting the past few weeks with taking a tiny bit of T3 in the morning, every other day (1 hour before I wake up). 1/6 of a 25mcg tiromel. I haven't taken it for months and never had t4. It's weird because to begin with I saw really positive effects from it - no side effects, extra energy, temperature up to 36.4 C as opposed to 35.8 it had been before. I stopped taking it for a week to have my blood tests, and now I've begun the same regime again I'm not seeing the results. My temp has stuck at 36-36.2 and refuses to move! I feel tired more as well and today I feel like I'm getting a headache.
I hypothesize the possible reasons
1. My adrenals are burning out (please no)
2. I have used more t3 on more exercise (I have been a little more active lately due to more energy)
3. Body has got used to this dosage and needs more? (Unlikely I feel)
4. Can t3 go off?? Become less effective? I bought this batch 6 months ago.
5. I need t4.
What seems most likely or have I overlooked something? I am still working at upping my b12/folate/ferritin levels. But I was before so I don't see why it suddenly stopped being effective. I just don't want the horrible headaches and heart palps again. But I do want to get better! Sorry for this mess of a post, I'm just a little stuck! If I haven't given enough details just ask thank you so much.
