Just found this amazing site. So need to ask a question or 2
Had RAI over a years for graves. Started levythyroxine and have not felt well at all since. Tried all levels, up down etc. Bloods done and all ok...sometimes over...then meds adjusted etc. But so exhausted, as though I've ru a marathon upon waking up. Can't sleep well. Aching and pains etc. As well as very low mood wise etc.
So after a year. I asked that I try T3 med. but was told by consultant he is not allowed to prescribe it due to huge cost etc . Although the previous appt,with him 3 months prior he did want to start me on it then but I said no and panicked etc as gaining weight even though I'm good with food and I was exercise. Now I. Not so much as so tired.
Consultant is writing to doc and asking is he will prescribe....still waiting but I know it will be a no.
So ordered thyroid S and started today. With consultants blessing and doasage advise. 75mg levythyroxine and 1 grain of thyroid S to start.
Is anyone on both levy and NDT, of so how are you doing with
I'm so fed up of feeling like this. I have no life as such. I work then go to bed. Get up work and go to bed. Even though I can't stay up as so tired.
A,so have back problems so laying down is better than sitting. As cannot sit for long with pain. MRI result pending on that too.
