Well, here I am on 3 grains after several weeks of gradually increasing by 1/2 a grain at a time.
Giving up Levo after 19 years has been a huge leap of faith, and very daunting. I am a bit of a naval gazer and prone to over - analysis, and that means I worry myself half to death!
Anyway, I had a decision to make about raising again. I really wasn't feeling all that well and had to decide if this was because I was on too much Thiroyd, or too little. After reading a post about "Air Hunger," I recognised that I was experiencing this and decided that I am still hypo.
I am still sleeping a lot. I need a nap after work still. I have to say that the quality of sleep I get has improved. I sleep more deeply and feel more rested afterwards. Dreams are very strange - real and vivid!
Breathing - I think a yoga master would be proud of me - I used to be a very shallow breather, now I am enjoying long, deep, slow breathing. It's very calming.
I feel less achy than before.
I am less inclined to eat sweets or chocolate at the moment - cravings have eased considerably.
My weight hasn't changed at all, although I feel less fatty and soft, if that makes any sense.
My urticaria hasn't made an appearance recently.
I still have issues with temperature control - I am one of those who always boils up and is rarely cold. I would love to be cool for a change!!
Well, it's still early days. I am still glad I made the switch from Levo. Just a question of finding my optimum dosage of Thiroyd!
Good luck to all on a similar journey!
