I have posted previously, this is an just update to hopefully get some more good advice. Thanking you all in advance.
My doctor has finally given me a trial of thyroxine 25mcgs after she consulted an endo. I have been taking the thyroxine for 17 days and I had a few days feeling that I was getting my energy back but the last few days have been a struggle. Very bad stomach cramps for a couple of days; foot pain, hip pain, dry mouth, and headache I am also a bit breathless. I have a few options, I could just persevere for a bit longer in case my symptoms stop or maybe try halving my dose before returning to the doctor for advice. My doctor didn’t want me to take thyroxine as she says my thyroid is fine but in view of all my symptoms decided to the trial. Do you think it too soon to ask to have my blood tests repeated or could it be that I just don’t tolerate T4 and would it be worth trying the smallest dose of T3 ?
