You've all been so hopeful before and I have some new recent labs... The back story is that I had TT due to thyca 11/14, RAI 1/15. Started 150 Levoxyl, added in Cytomel, went to NDT and have since gone back to the T4/T3 combo. A month ago I was advised to not only add in the 5 mcg of Cytomel, but to also raise my T4 from 163 to 191 (by alternating doses) as my TSH would not go under 1.0, regardless of how much T4 I was taking.
The Cytomel makes a difference but since being on Tirosint, I am experiencing extreme mental lethargy and I CAN NOT sleep; no REM sleep and jolted wide awake. A sleep study last week ruled out apnea.
Dear lord, guys, I need help. I've wasted almost two years feeling depressed and being so fatigued to enjoy anything. I've even had to cut down in work which has affected living and my eyes burn daily. Anyway, here are my most recent labs. To note, no meds were taken 24 hours prior:
TSH: .06 (range .450 - 4.5)
FT4: 1.40 (.82 - 1.77)
FT3: 2.8 (2.0 - 4.4)
Reverse T3: 17.5 (9.2 - 24.1)
Total T3: 94 (71-180)
Does anyone have any suggestion what I should do or what dosage strike a chord?
I'm desperate to start feeling normal.
Thank you all.
