Having gone a few years with no T4 in system and some horrible new symptoms, I worked out likely to be lack of T4 so have started taking it the past few weeks. I think it will take a while and my thyroid really hurt the first few days for some reason but apart from that, there's enough little glimpses of improvements to think this was the definitely the case - phew. Memory's not dropping half as much and pupils are dilating perfectly on a permanent basis now and a few other bits like actually wanting to talk to people lol!
If it continues going this way, at some point I will write about all the symptoms I was having and the changes since for anyone to read in the future as might be useful for someone else in my position.
However, my heart rate has continued to rise each day now just over 100 resting which has never occurred with hyper/hypo symptoms before and I'm having a lot of stiffness/pain in my back which seems to get worse each day that I take the T4. Doesn't feel quite like a mechanical back issue which I haven't had for a long time either and not a major block as would rather have brain function with these issues over the opposite any day lol!
I'm sure I read something about Teva having some sort of side effects at some point, is this what people had? The ones I have is Teva 25mcg but I have nothing to compare it too as haven't taken levo for a very long time. Saw a post suggesting acacia but that's in my T3 too and never had a problem there. Do you think I should try another type or any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance
