I have learnt a lot since reading your posts and responses as I have been a long time lurker!! I would like to ask a bit of advice -
I have been Hypothyroid for many years and spent most of this on T4 only treatment and felt more and more unwell. I was referred to an Endo and now take T4 and T3 hoiwwoever the previous endo said that I do not convert the T4. Roll on a year and incorrectly diagnosed with PMR and given very high steroid doses for a year. the referred back to another Endo and he insists that it is my T4 levels that are incorrect as my TSH is too high. He has increased now to T4 275 and the T3 remained on 20mcg a day split over 2 doses. I felt horrid and so poorly.
I have now tried to increase my T3 and have currently managed to go from 20 to 35mcg a day and feel a bit better but not yet right as I seem to lack any stamina and feel fatigue all day but my high blood pressure and fast heart rate has reduced a bit too. I feel that I need to increase again but do not have enough prescribed T3 to manage this without running out in a few days. Would it be possible for some kind person to message me with where to purchase this, I understand that it can be purchased from Greece.
I have recently had more blood tests as I am off to see the Rheumatologist this afternoon as she thinks I may have Fibro instead of the PMR. I will try and get a copy of these while I am there.
