After dealing with a high rT3 issue, and going on T3-only for about 11 weeks, I have now started Nature-Throid. The doctor started me on 1 grain (65mg) in the morning, and a 1/2 grain (32.5mg) in the afternoon. I felt pretty great for the first three days – dropped about 4 pounds in fluid retention, had energy, and was clear-minded!
Unfortunately, now the fluid retention is returning, as are some aches, pains, and fatigue. I'm not sleeping very well, and I've also picked up muscle twitches in my eyelid and right arm. Not sure what's going on there. I know any change in meds can cause some weird and fleeting new symptoms, so I'm trying to keep a level head. I'm committed to giving Nature-Throid a fair shot.
I'm wondering if it's already time to increase the dose? I can't afford to go hypo again, nor can I afford to gain any more weight, so I want to stay on top of things.
