I think I need T3

Hi - could be several issues at play here and without some more info any advice would be purely guesswork. Do you have any recent blood test results you can share? Thyroid but also vit d, vit b12, folate, ferritin and anti-bodies if you have them.

How much levo were you taking? How much Synthroid are you taking now? You could just be under-medicated, but we'd need to see your blood test results to know. :)
