Hello everyone happy Friday! Well I started taking NDT beginning of July as I was perpetually tired and suffering from 6 migraines a week been on T3/T4 combo since Dec 2015 but endo. wouldn't increase the dose. I had my six monthly/in reality 8 monthly check in with the endo the beginning of August. He said I was deficient in Vitamin D, was pleased with the TSH and T4 took blood tests to check my T3 as the Drs surgery would never check this! he was happy with the dose I was on, I asked if I could be intolerant to T4 as I was still feeling awful and he said no, he didn't want to up my T3 as I was on a good dose- ie the starting dose of 20 mcg so I didn't bother telling him i'd started taking NDT since my last lot of blood test results in June.
I got the results back from august blood test :my TSH was suppressed at 0.04!- which I was shocked after 2 months of NDT and my T4 was 12.6 and Total T3 above the upper limit of 3.0 .
I started my NDT at 2 1/2 grains uping half a grain every two weeks, after 6 weeks my migraines subsided to one a week- MAJOR IMPROVEMENT. I stuck at 3 1/2 grains for a few weeks but last week I had 3 migraines and the past two weeks I have been in the deepest sleep at night, struggling to wake up in the morning, during the day I am struggling to stay awake. last week I upped my NDT to 4 grains still feeling really tired. I take Vit B12, Magnesium and iron. I've recently come off the progesterone pill, just worried I am never going to feel energised and I don't want the migraines to come back i've changed my hours at work so I work 5 hours every day now to see if that would help with the fatigue.
Not started taking Vitamin D3 yet - will It make a difference to how I'm feeling? should I start the Vit D3 before I increase my NDT ? my body temp is still stubbornly stuck at 36.6 I'm not having any hyper symptoms, just worried I'm taking a much higher dose of thyroid hormones and still feeling tired.
