Bit of background. I have and accept crashes after I overdue it or emotional stress gets out of hand but since my last post on the off kilter event, I have had successive little ones. I have gradually cut down my thyroid replacement of natural dessicated as I am finding I cant deal with it: tremors/jerks and sweats soon as the t3 kicks in. My next strategy was to multi-dose, say four times a day. All this in the wait up to my app for blood draw on Wed, then to see a rather nice GP in early Dec. It would be hopeless speaking to another earlier. BUT I had a massive crash yesterday and called out the paramedics - I am ashamed to say. But thought my brain was going to shut down and I could barely move. My vitals weren't showing anything to concern them and I subsequently was checked out via tel with the after-hours GP. They were all thinking around infection because of the complete malaise and I didn't even try to chew over the possibility of adrenals/thyroid. The worst of it passed and I am back to no energy and feeling like my legs have been kicked all over, but I am grateful to be sat up typing this. .....
I am also getting rapidly fluctuating temps...and sweats on exertion or alone oscillating with cold.
No brain fog.
Loose fluffy stools.
And generally feeling both hypo and hyper.
Scooting around the usual culprits I fit into the adrenal crash and recovery more than other things although I am getting iron, folate and D tested, and saliva cortisol test. I already supp with b12, so that test would be unreliable and I read mag test is too.
So, my question is, can thyroid slumps be that bad!? It seems most of us are never perfect, I can understand that, but slipping like this is scary.
