Currently awake with another migraine. Feeling awful, my fatigue is getting worse I'm in bed at nine every-night struggle to get up at 7:30 I need a nap during the day but cannot because of work so I've increased my caffeine to try and keep me awake during the day. After dinner I am falling asleep I cannot take anymore, I am a single parent and completely exhausted. II am taking 5/6 migraines a week now I am currently on 50 mcg of Thyroxine and 25mcg of Liothyronine.
Already asked my gp to ask the endo to up my T3 in February and April of this year, In Feb he decided to up my thyroxine instead to 75mcg after 3 weeks I stopped and went back to 50 mcg due to dizziness and nausea I've not heard back regarding Aprils request so I upped my T3 from 20 mcg to 25 mcg hoping it would make a difference it hasn't. I have bought NDT I was wondering if I could start supplementing my T3/T4 with NDT?
I am about to run out of T3 in the next few days- the pills have to come up from England and take about a week. I last had my bloods done in FEB. I take vitamin B12 under the tongue. I decided I was going to start self medicating as I feel I am going to completely shut down or possibly have a stroke with all the triptan medication I can't go on feeling this lousy and in pain the Drs aren't listening, not sure if they don't believe me or don't care.
I was wondering if I could use a bit of NDT or if I should just stop my T3/T4 combination and go the whole hog and start NDT I am worried about feeling even worse starting at the lowest dose.
