The Continuing Story

I just thought I'd share with everyone my current status. I had my blood drawn a couple of weeks ago and was told all my thyroid levels and hormone levels were very low, plus I had a lot of inflamation throughout my body. I continue on a very restrictive diet and am increasing my T3. I am now up to 15 mcgs. Taking 5 mcg once in the am, 3pm and about 10 pm. Initially, my head and chest hurt and I had palpitations. This is now gone, as is my morning hot spells. I feel I can think clearer. My trigeminal pain keeps threatening to return, although it's not that often I get the pain. I've added an adrenal pill and some pantothenic acid. I'm a bit irritable, but overall I really don't feel that much different. I was told to increase the T3 rather then the NatureThroid because of the inflamation. I could go up another 5 mcg, but going to stay the course for at least the next few weeks. That's about it, stay tuned!

Have you tried B12 supplements for the trigeminal pain? Low B12 is common with hypo and B12 supplements helped my pain. Just a thought, tho I know you said it's not too bad at mo.


Thanks Beth, I do take it, maybe I'm not absorbing it properly, or taking enough. I'll look into it.
