I posted on here a couple of months ago and received some great replies that really helped. However, can I pose some more questions please? I am now on 2.25 grains of Naturethroid and have been for two weeks now ( I built up slowly over the past 6 weeks) . After initially feeling quite good,the past few days, I have been experiencing extreme fatigue again plus other symptoms like those experienced when I was under-medicated ( itchiness, joint pain, hair loss). I'm also getting raised pulse ( 104) in the evening. During the day, my blood pressure is fine ( in the green on my machine- 120 over 80 this morning with a pulse of 78- but my body feels like it's almost "trembling", deep inside ) I am not particularly fit at the moment ( I always have been an active outdoor worker) due to the fatigue caused by under medication. I felt fine last night, even though I could feel my heart beating quite strongly. Should I be concerned? Would it be safe to increase the NDT- and indeed, does it sound necessary? Am I being impatient and does it take longer for NDT to make a difference? Could it be an adrenal problem? I've never had adrenal check. Do I have to get Doc to do it or can Blue Horizon do that too? Sorry for so many questions, but I have no faith in doctors any more.
These are my bloods (Blue Horizon) from mid February;-
