After finally seeing a private doctor in January, I began my treatment taking non-prescription Metavive. I found that my energy levels improved slowly but I lost no weight - in fact I gained - and after a couple of months I started to feel a very sore throat. I was taking all appropriate supplements including iodine. I cut back a little on the iodine but kept vitamins going. Eventually I stopped the metavive and the throat discomfoet went away. My GP was annoyed I had tried treatment as my TSH was never over 4 🙄
I switched to nature-Throid a few weeks ago after a break when I was unwell and am taking 1.5 grains am and 1 grain about 4:30pm. All was good until a few days ago when the throat discomfoet started.
- I am not experiencing any hyper symptoms aside from a feeling of thumping when walking hills (and that could very well be just weighing 200lbs!)
- my weight remains stubbornly stuck, I have joint and tendon pain especially in my knees (weight?)
- could it be that as my period approaches I get a flare of something?? My antibodies are historically very low when tested, but in March? My FT4 And FT3 were still at the very low end of normal so I don't think metavive was doing much for me.
- I should be on B12 shots but I am freaked about SI after managing for a few months last year and piling on weight as well as feeling even worse...
Just wondering if others had sore but not swollen thyroid and approximate dose. I know, let's blame extreme sleep deprivation
