Hi again everyone. Thank you for all of your advice in my previous posts.
To summarize my labs:
I have low free thyroid values (ft3 bottom of range, ft4 just below range)
I have a 'normal' (1.95) tsh.
I have had a TRH stimulation test (with a slight delay in response, showing possible slight hypothalamus/pituitary) issue.
I tested salivary cortisol 6 months ago and in chronological order got mid-range, bottom of range, high, high.
I have high b12 and folate
To summarize other symptoms:
My heart rate is very low (40 upon waking at the moment)
My blood pressure is extremely low and I see stars even when walking around
I have intermittent tinnitus
I am shedding hair all day like crazy
My face is swollen and with thick, pale skin
My memory is terrible and worsening by the day
My energy is non-existent
I have mild insomnia that prevents me falling asleep for a couple of hours
I have developed terrible anxiety in the last few weeks
When I tried to quit smoking 3 weeks ago I crashed so badly that I had to be driven home and couldn't see properly
Now, smoking again, I have a panic attack after every cigarette and feel faint.
I can't recover from exercise
I have swollen lymph nodes
To summarize my attempted treatments:
I tried half a grain of NDT for a month, and became completely spaced out, disorientated, and my heart pounded in my chest and ears all night long. I also had terrible insomnia.
I have decided to purcahse hydrocortisone, and have some on its way to me. I'm hoping that by just a small dosage in the AM will allow me to tolerate the NDT.
What do you all think? Can you help me at all?
Thank you so much,
