Hi again everyone.Been taking t3 only for year and a half now.40 mcg one day 45 mcg the next. Still feel bad ,but little better and more stable. However after 12 weeks at this dose now feel awful this last week .I was on 45 mcg a day but got hyper symptoms after 6 weeks and had to reduce.I have had hip knee and shoulder pain for months now ,but has got so bad making me feel sick.Feel nauseated weak like I am going to pass out all the time,very surreal.

Taking different doses on different days isn't a very good idea. You can do that with T4, no problem, because it's a storage hormone. But with T3, you need a constant amount, or you'll confuse your body. Or so I'm told. Try taking 40 a day, and see if that helps.

Do you have any blood test results to show us? Have you had nutrients tested : vit D, vit B12, folate and ferritin?
