This is my first post, although I've been looking at this site for a while now. Reading the posts on this site has made me feel much less alone with this horrible condition, and for that I thank you.
I've had Hashimotos for 8 to 9 years now, but the last two years have been very bad for me. I had to give up my job a few months ago because I just didn't have the energy to do it anymore (I was in tears with exhaustion). I've been living on my savings since then, but I really need to get back to work soon. I still have very little energy. I've tried to explain this to my GP, but he just doesn't respond.
I paid for a bh blood test
TSH 0.96 (0.27- 4.20)
Free T4 19.13 (12-22)
Free T3 4.71 (3.1-6.8)
I'm taking 125mcg levothyroxine. I've tried to take more, in case that helped, but my hands just started shaking.
I would like to try adding a little T3, but the doctor just said it wasn't necessary , when I asked. Could someone please pm me with details on how to get it myself ? I would be very gateful, and for any advice as well. Thank you.
