Well that's just over 3 months now I've been on T3 &T4 combination 50 mcg of T4 daily and 20Mcg of T3 daily.
During the 3 months my migraines have reduced in frequency and intensity and I've been feeling much better I even had a whole 2 1/2 weeks with no migraines whatsoever but they came back with a vengeance and I still suffer from fatigue desperately wanting to nap in the afternoons even after a good 10 hours sleep every night. So I went to my G.p for my blood tests and said I was feeling better but still tired think I need an increase in T3!
So my results are : T4 was 14.8 in Dec now 9.6 in March TSH was 4.42 in Dec now 3.73 in March.
Trouble is my Endo. has decided to increase my thyroxine and not my T3- I think this is a cost cutting issue as It makes no sense to me! I've been on T4 for 4 years and have never felt good on it T3 has been the only Meds that has decreased my migraines. So I am seriously considering self medication as I m sure I'll need to wait another 6-12 weeks for the increase in thyroxine to kick in and for new blood tests.
Anyone found an increase in T4 helpful as I personally feel its useless.
