I had a partial thyroidectomy in February due to a large benign nodule & told by endocrinologist I can live sufficiently with half thyroid & no medication required. I see a private doctor is london and she put me on 25mcg levothyroxine after looking at my blood results. I felt great for first 10 weeks & then went downhill feeling tired, really irritable etc. Went back & she said my reverse t3 is high so I'm probably not converting well so has included combined t4/t3 novothyral which is half tablet (75 dose) every other day along with Levo every other day.
In the last week I have become so anxious I feel like I'm buzzing inside and my legs feel odd now & then as though they will give way & numb which I think is anxiety. I only received the new tablets yesterday and have taken one dose but feel scared to increase medication in case it makes me worse! Does anyone have any advice? I also have hashimotos.
