I've been on t3 only for nearly fifteen years and results seem to show I haven't produced any t4 of my own for a number of years even when undermedicated. I had to drop 10mcg of my t3 as was showing signs of hyper - sweating, memory issues, nausea, hyper reflexes, shaking etc and a feeling of toxicity every time I took more. My tsh was also slightly raised even though t3 was showing over range. After going six months of lower dose, these hyper symptoms reduced but I've become hypothyroid and have no energy and many hypo symptoms so the consultant and I decided best to add 25mcg of T4 to see if this would help. I have been taking this since thursday but my actual thyroid area has become more and more painful each day until today where the pain is now spreading to other areas (ears/jaw/neck) and am having to take pain killers as really hurting now and is also really painful to swallow. The pain is definitely originating from the thyroid area as this is the only place which hurts to press.
Has anyone else had this happen to them? Is this just because body has not had t4 for a while and just needs time to settle or should I stop taking the t4 and call the consultant?
Just wanted to see as never had this problem before??
many thanks in advance
