Hi there. I'm hashimoto's and was on levothyroxine for just over 2 months and got up to 75mcg. 5 days ago i started taking WP thyroid (natural desiccated thyroid) after reading stop the thyroid madness and researching and coming to the conclusion that i wanted to get of synthetic and treat as natural as possible. However, within a day of starting i felt really bad and by day 5 i gave up and went back on levo thinking that it was doing more damage than good. After speaking to the thyroid community on FB, i've decided to give it another go and taken a smaller dose. i feel like i have a very bad virus right now; really sore throat, pressure headache, sore neck, tight chest, some angina pain sometimes, whole body weak and feel fuzzy, stomach hurts and losing appetite. Theres lost going on though like gallstone, gut issues, and adrenal problems which i'm trying to address all but i wondered if anyone had similar issues switching to NDT and what your thoughts were. I'm supplementing with selenium, vitamin c, iron, vitamin d, probiotics & magnesium every night. i want to persevere with it as lots of people say they struggled but also lots said it just wasn't right for them and they needed T3 added to NDT. slightly confused and very worried about my health as i feel like i'm deteriorating
