I have had a very stressful few days with all sorts of things going wrong, next day delivery taking 5 days so far and other life stresses. I have been on NDT for 3 months now from 50 mcg levothyroxine and now taking 1.25 grains Thiroyd throughout the day in quarters. But been feeling more and more hypo as the day went on and this evening my old hypo symptoms returning. I take Rhodiola and Ashwagandha and they seem to keep me on a good even path but I am wondering if having a stressful situation lowers the thyroid hormones. I am not feeling the immediate stress or anger but just a general stressful 6 days. For the last 3 nights I have been taking 5HTP and sleeping really well, better than ever before and I even had a dream last night that Poldark was cuddling me!! It was amazing. I wondered if 5HTP had anything to do with the low thyroid symptoms?
