I've been on NDT for 3 months got up to 2 grains but am still symptomatic . Results show low tsh high t3 notmal t4.
Doc said I was over medicated....but I still have symptoms. I'm new to this milarky and still trying to get head around the whole T this and T that....
I was advised to lower dose but I'm not sure if I should because I still have symptoms. And to be perfectly honest the doc doesn't really know what he's prescribed as he didn't know what the formulation of the armour I was taking and had to google it. He just wrote prescription out, for 2 grains armour.
Anyway the reason I'm asking is that I have really sore boobs!! And read that this could be due to over medication on t3??
I'm also going through menopause joy!!!! And I have no idea if or when I'll get another period which it might be down to who know???
All I know is that I'm utterly sick to death of this. It's been going on for over a year now...initially they shot me straight onto 150mcg of levothyroxine...I was so ill I came off it and stated on NDT in August.
As I've explained to another friend of mine who is also thyroid patient I want to find out what I can do for the best. There are so many stories out there I've come to realise that there isn't a one size fits all and that we are all individuals...I just wondered if there were others who are going through similar to me and if they have managed to find some solutions...
as for menopause symptoms I've found the perfect most amazing food supplement to cure the hot sweats!!! Worked within 3 days and perfectly good to use with hypothyroidsim !!
If only this thyroid rubbish was as simple eh?
Cheers for any help
