I'm new here, I hope you can help me.
I have had been diagnosed with chronic fatigue after many years of going to my GP with multiple unexplained symptoms including extreme fatigue, very dry skin, dry eyes, head and body hair loss, brittle nails, slow gastric emptying, dysphagia, constipation, joint and muscle pains to name but a few. I have been to several specialist and had numerous blood tests all to no avail. My thyroid function came back at borderline normal, TSH- 5, T4 - 11.2, T3 - 3.9. My GP very kindly prescribed a trial course 50mg levothyroxine but I am afraid it has had no effect, if anything I feel slightly worse with increasing muscle fatigue and aching joints. I think I may benefit from a small addition of T3. Where can it be purchased from? My GP will not consider prescribing it to me and I am afraid all medical help has now been exhausted. Help!
