I'm back with another update and would like your feedback on my latest labs and symptoms.
As most of you know, I had a partial thyroid removal 5 months ago and have been slowly recovering. A lot of my original symptoms have diminished, but I am still experiencing the internal tremors, ringing in the ears, and lightheaded. I am also experiencing a few new issues, relating to my hormone levels.
My Holistic doctor suggested that I take a small dose of natural desiccated T3 (5mg) and look into bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, to address the other hormonal issues, but I am a bit skeptical and wanted to seek out the groups feedback.
