Well that was a bit of a disaster, I’m on 25 mcg of T4 should be on 100/125 alt days, So saw endo a couple of weeks ago who said that she thought that I was allergic to T4 and would prescribe T3 she said that she would start me on 10 mcg, So while waiting for all this to happen I bought T3 25mcg cut the pill in half and took that, day one was fine and I felt well, day two was good and so I thought well I wonder if I’m good to take the other half of the pill at night, well didn’t sleep very well got up the next morning and took another half, boy did I regret that, massive reaction to overtreatment, really bad chest pains, emotional rollercoaster (weeping for no reason) then started running some sort of fever by the time I went to bed I was shaking so much I could hardly get undressed. Got up this morning and seem fine, luckily this stuff is more forgiving than T4 that takes weeks to get out of your system. I should have known better, people on the forum did say be careful not to take it too fast, but did I listen. NO I DIDN’T, I’m actually going to wait now until my GP gives me the pills but I’m going to take tiny amounts and increase really slowly as I really don’t want to rerun of yesterday. Honestly I was in such a state!! I go running most days and it was raining yesterday but out I went anyway thinking it doesn’t matter if I cry as it’s raining, on my runs I feed “My Crows” and assorted dogs that are my regulars, so loaded up with biscuits off I went, my favourite crow is an old girl I call Haffoot as she only has half a foot and I always make sure she gets the most, well I took one look at her poor foot yesterday and cried like a 4 year old, I mean sobbed, Luckily there was no one around, I did laugh at the same time however as she looked at me with a look that said, “what the hell is wrong with you?” and then in my mind’s eye I heard my father now long gone who was a naval officer saying “for god’s sake man pull yourself together!!” So between the crows and my father I did make a concerted effort however I have to say I failed rather badly. Still today is good and I’ve a new plan for when the GP gives me T3. And at least unlike T4 the overtreatment doesn’t last for weeks or months.
