Hello all. I suppose I'm looking for some reassurance please based on your experiences.
I have hashimotos, on levothyroxine 150mcg for last 9 years. Felt pretty rubbish for the last 5 years of that with various symptoms and medical issues. Exhausted with NHS and NHS proabably exhausted with me too (!) so on my own now.
My recent results on 150mcg levothyroxine were:
TSH – 1.74 (0.27 – 4.20)
, FT4 – 19.89 (12-22)
, FT3 – 3.73 (3.1-6.8)
So I started gradually adding some T3 over the last three weeks. I've played around abit with the combination but have settled on 100mcg T4 and 25mcg T3. I now need to wait 5 more weeks before I can get any bloods but keen to get your thoughts on whether this seems a bit much of either or maybe not enough. I know you don't know, but your guesses would be much appreciated.
As for how I feel- it's only early days I know but at first i felt pretty rubbish- I had one day where I just kept knodding off and then about two days where I felt horrific and convinced myself I might die (don't know what that was about?!). Otherwise back to feeling the same as before so foggy and lethargic (but no worse than before) but more weight seems to be appearing every time I weigh myself which is quite depressing.
Any thoughts and advice much appreciated.
(Am still works on my vitamins and minerals but none are really bad.)
