Can someone please advise me, as trying to get my dosages right but feeling very tired all the time, and getting dismayed with all this as I am feeling more and more exhausted each day and it is impacting my daily life.
My last blood test results before I started taking the T3 was TSH of 1.37, and free T4 of 9.7, ferritin 56, with low Vit D for which my GPprescribed Vit D supplementation.
For my thyroid, after some consultation with a specialist, I started taking T3 about 3 weeks ago, starting with half a tablet (12.5mcg) in the morning. I didnt feel much difference, so upped this to one 25mcg tablet in the morning. Still not much change, so I then started adding some T4 (50mcg dose) along with the T3. The last week I noticed my heart rate was stronger, so I reduced back to half a T3 tablet, and stopped the T4 for a few days. The heart palpitations stopped but I feel more exhausted than ever. I am also taking daily iron supplement, to avoid becoming anaemic again, but still feeling drained.
It is really getting me down now, as each morning it takes me absolutely ages to get going with my day. I feel tired after even just the smallest task, over weight and struggling to address this, and have zero energy to do any exercise (the thought just fills me with dread!). I have read so many posts on here with others experiencing similar issues. But even with the T3 and T4 tablets why am I not having any more energy? It seems to be getting worse.
Any advice most welcome, before I give up and just resign myself to being a permanent coach potato.
