Did anyone feel worse (cognitively, physically) when increasing t3? I felt so well when I first introduced it into my regimen so I associate it w strength and stamina, but I'm not getting any of that right now. I wonder if maybe this just isn't for me and I should go back to my usual levo/t3 combo.
Over time since March I've gone from 75/100 levo + 10 t3 to 25/50 levo and 25 t3. I feel like my head is not working at all. I just can make no sense of any series of tasks, I am having more trouble than ever prioritising. If I have three things to do in a row I will do one and forget the others until something prompts me, and then I may cycle through the same process of forgetting and remembering a few times before it gets done. It's hard to explain, I can only imagine this must be what it feels like to be a goldfish. I also felt this way when I tried low carb.
It is not impossible that I'm just underdosed right now but every time I raise t3 I get some hyper symptoms and I really hate that so I'm going slow.
Also struggling w typing (making loads of mistakes) and other physical tasks. Have fallen down out of the blue - ! - and mis-stepped on stairs I use dozens of times a day. Feeling weak and feeble, definitely worse than usual.
The improvements I can see are that in general my mood seems a little better (when I'm not freaking out about how badly my brain is working ) and my colouring seems much better than usual. When I was diagnosed I was so pale I was almost grey, and levo helped return some colour to my face. Now on mostly t3 my face looks properly peachy. (I'm also taking iron which might be helping.) Hair loss also seems to have slowed.
