I've been on this alternating dose of 137/150 for three months now and had labs again:
TSH: .43 range .35 - 5.5
FT4: 1.3. range .8 - 1.8
FT3: 2.4. Range 2.3 - 4.2
My TSH fluctuates per every blood draw, so I don't even pay attention to that... it was at 2.0 when on almost 20 mcg more of T4...
My sleep as we know, it's disappeared with my thyroid and I thought reducing meds would help. Instead, I feel less anxious and I'm more lethargic and I want to nap more often but don't because I wake up like I was hit by a ton of bricks.
I'm guessing the lower FT4 aids anxiety but that FT3? Is this common?? I find my fingers go tingly when raised (like when reading a book in bed) and my eyes ache from exhaustion and I'm guessing this is due to the lack of T3 hormone? Adding T3 doesn't seem to help as much and I'm open to Armour again but am quite nervous and bluntly, scared.... But any thoughts on what can work now? Raise my medicine? That FT3 stays to plateau, no matter what I'm on... :/
