Today I have had episodes of very fast heart rate and feeling extra dizzy and shaky (dizzy as in balance and vertigo issues not feint) One 20 minutes and I was almost calling 999, and some smaller ones which seemed to be connected to blood sugar. I've been going up and down with blood sugar a while now but still would not pack in coffee so I guess that did not help. Have read some pretty comprehensive info on here, plus links, on relationship btweent3 and blood sugar increase. My other concern is if I am storming or pooling and dumping, or, whatever, in that area. I have been extremely stressed since September after completely severing my flexor tendons on my little finger the merry-go-round began after five days worth of high dose antibiotics to protect from any surgical infection, numerous hospital trips, loss of earnings and constantly on catchup, and now juggling work with caring for my mum post her recent and unexpected surgery...so, I guess my stress levels are through the roof.
Prior to the antibiotics I was very good for ages and almost felt completely normal. Now feeling both hypo and hyper symptoms but cant imagine there is anything life of my own thyroid left..maybe there is.
I replace with ndt under the care of an endo. My dose is between 1.5 - 1.87 grains . He wanted me to reduce to 2 grains when I was too high on 3 grains (high t3 result), but suggested 2.5 if I went too low. The aforementioned dosage regime has suited me for a while with a very tiny top of t3 occasionally but not recently. I read that is a very low and unlikely to be optimal in the wider ndt community AKA STTM. I will have another iron test, and an adrenal profile but I am sat here sweating and and feeling a bit palpy and with energy, and tired - bowels have been a bit frequent and soft too, which is why I am wondering if I am dumping and if/does that affect insulin levels too. And can one have successive mini dumps till things clear ...arghh These symptoms seem to be aggravated by activity, like the jazzy t3 hit but stuttering.
Thanks in advance...and if no one replies...I don't blame you :)x
