Does the muscle pain & the feeling of total weakness improve quickly after Levo if increased ? I have other symptoms (High Blood pressure , dry eyes , weight gain , acid issues, anxiety , sleep issues ) but the weakness bothers me most. I am only 52 and feel old and weary having battled this for 7 years . I am only on 50mg of levo but doc has always refused to treat me above borderline - I sent her some stuff from here last week and she's asked to see me to discuss Levo increase ( finally !!!).
Results 2 weeks ago :
T4 11.1 ( 12-22)
T3 3.4 ( 3.1 - 6.8 )
TSH 1.62 ( 0.27 - 4.2)
She's also run a lot of bloodwork to check Vitamins and minerals too - will get them today - I am dreading being fobbed off again as have had these results or similar for 7 years and just feel I add a new symptom very few months .
Two other things - can I exercise with low T3 ? how does it affect it ?
and I have never tested my Cholesterol which I believe is affected by too by low T3 ?
Sorry for long post - any help / advise before docs would be helpful x
