Hey guys, I'm past my wit's end, my spectrum of caring because it's been such a long time being so miserable, feeling beyond insecure, mourning my old self. I've spent far too much money, lost my free time, and have been disregarded y the vast array of doctors that are to help. I've documented, I've had bunches but just can't get a break. In summary, I had thyca and had a full TT11/14, RAI 1/15. The interim between the two found me on 25 T3. Starting on 150 T4, two weeks following I found my hair loss starting; it has continued so terribly a year later that I can't even fathom having it not stop. That's not bad this has gotten. My other symptoms are my lethargy, lack of zeal, exhaustion, tingling, etc. I've bounced from 150 levoxyl to 150 with 25 mcg (felt woahhh, hypeddddd) to NDT for seven months and realized losing a lot of weight and hypo and all levels of hyper, so I've returned to 125 levoxyl and 5 cytomel. I don't feel much better. My T4/t3 are both in the low end and my TSH has been at .3 for the past month which I'm sure is the cytomel doing that; my body responds very quickly to T3 and having had my TSH at 0 was not good for me. So my question is, what is STILL causing this hair loss?? It's so heat breaking and I was it once a week. Everyone says this but having no confidence before this, my hair was one attribute I really loved. I work in a beauty driven business, too, it's just... if just this damn hair loss would stop then I could focus on another symptom, but it never damn does. So before I divert elsewhere, my question is, I've been on T3 most of this post TT journey... yes, I felt good the eight weeks prior to RAI on it and experienced no hair loss, not until T4 came in or maybe it was the RAI. But I've been told I'm not a good converter but this was also early in the game. I'm wondering if I raise my dose of T4 that maybe my T3 will raise too, that maybe this is the secret weapon because I'm feeling like a functional hypo person and so many have told me the hair loss stopped after being on T4 alone. I take all my vitamins (even before thyca) and don't understand what caused this to start and why won't it stop. I want to feel better all around but this is just bumming me out.
Sorry for the rant... I just don't know where to go or whom else to ask as I've kinda' become a bit blessed about this. Thank you!
