Hello hope everyone is ready for Christmas!
I have a quick question - I have been doing OK on 125ug T4 for the last year or so, but have been trying PS to reduce cortisol (over 6 weeks ramping from 100mg to 300mg x2 per day) and started to have anxiety symptoms occasionally so stopped two weeks ago, not quite felt right since, but the last few days I have had quite unsettling symptoms (tight chest, shortness of breath, palpitations) in the mornings and gone off sick from work and it usually subsides by the afternoon, hot flushes 4-7pm.
Went to see the walk in GP today as mine is useless and he could only take my pulse and blood pressure and say I'm fine, go to A&E if it happens again, which is what I am worried about tomorrow. I think it is that I'm going hyper due to lowered cortisol and increased T4->T3 conversion as I also feel quite hot and have had a few hyper symptoms before when titrating my original dose, I tend to stick at the top of the range to stop getting too tired in the evenings (last test from October was TSH 0.1, FT4 21.24, FT3 5.0)
So the question is, what is the quickest and safest way to reduce my T4 pool and not feel too bad. Should I skip a dose tomorrow before going down to 100ug or just go down to 100ug and wait a few days? I'm planning in staying on 100ug for a few weeks until my next blood test to see where I am.
Any help this evening would be appreciated!
I can feel some palps now so going to take some magnesium...
