Dont honestly know where to start. In a nutshell have tried NDT and T4 and am now on 50 mcg T3 only.
Will list my recent blood results below ranges are tsh 0.35-5, t3 3.5-5.3
T3 45 mcg Dec 2014 tsh 0.13 t3 5.4
T3 50 mcg Mar 2015 tsh 0.21 t3 5.1
T3 52.5mcg Nov 2015 tsh 0.32 t3 6.3
Took my meds teatime the day before blood tests.
I feel so unwell. My body aches, my joints ache and I feel about 100. My worst symptom however is a feeling of being drugged. I barely function. I can only describe it as feeling like a zombie. I have felt like this for many years and cant continue like this. It affects my balance and I struggle to get through each day. I am breaking down crying all the time.
As you can see from the last blood test i am over range and when i see the endo next month he will have a pink fit. I dont know what else to try. I supplement with iron and B12 so no pointers there. I am starting to wonder if these symptoms are something else and was thinking about trailing HRT (i am 57).
What i cant understand is that my free t3 level looks more than adequate, if it was my thyroid why am I feeling so dreadful. I never felt much different taking meds. I have never felt the rush that some people get taking t3. My heart rate and bp initially were slightly up but now they are fine.
Would it be safe to just plough on and increase my meds to see if it my brain needs even more t3 to function. I have read that some people need to be quite a bit over the range to be well. Then you read info that says not to go over range. I am so defeated.
Sorry for the moan.
