I am felling sick for years. I wasn't sure what's wrong with me because besides slightly elevated TSH all my other results were fine. I am constantly in pain, cold, tired, brain fogged, overweight, my hair is shedding... I also have terrible swelling, some days I can't breathe or fit into any of my clothes. My doctor refused to treat me for anything. He didn't even make any sort of diagnose for my case. While ago I found a video on YouTube with an woman showing skip pinch test for hypothyroidism. I did it on me and WOW I couldn't pinch it at all! That was it, I am obviously hypothyroid and since I was reading around that tests can be normal and you can still be hypo I decided to selfmedicate. Since so many people are saying that they are feeling miserable on T4 I decided to start with T3. I took my first tablet yesterday morning and within an hour I already felt much warmer. Also my regular headache got better. My question is how long should I stay on this dose and when should I increase? Also is it better to take T3 only once a day or it's better that I take half in the morning and other half later. Thank you.
