I am currently on holiday and considering buying levothyroxine and t3 if i csn get it over the counter. Hubby is really against me doing this but im at my wits end.
Long story short ive had every thyroid test done including antibodies ( apart from reverse t3 ) along with vitamin b, d, iron, ferritin and full blood count and they are all normal. I have recently been told i have nodules and 1 is 3cm x 2cm and other smaller ones. Had ultrasound and fine needle biopsy and will get the results from biopsy whem i come back from hols.
All my problems seem to come from exertion may that be a hard workout or gentle walk. I end up with headaches, feel burnt out for days and depressed and just generally feeling off. Hair thinning out, outer eyebrows thinning out, weight gain etc. Due to these symptoms i have avoided any kind of exercise but with me being on holiday today i went for a walk im intense heat and did some gentle swimming amd bam a few hours later i am back to square 1 amd now feel like going to the chemist and buying some t3 or thyroxine or armour or any thyroid medication i cam get my hands on just to see if it makes any difference.
Im obviously wary of doing this because all my bloods are normal but obviously i have hypo symptoms (apart from feeling cold ) and large nodules so surely there s some issue with my thyroid but those bloody blood tests and all saying normal. Im so frustrated now sitting on my holidays feeling exhausted, sad and fed up and my husband just does not understand 😡
I dont have my recent results to hand as im on hols but all i remember is tsh is 0.27 so not exactly looking like its hypo as this would be raised.
Would self medicating do me harm even though my tsh doesn't show hypo yet i have what seems like some sort of issue going on with thyroid?
