Hi all. I'm at my wit's end! From diagnosis with hypo thyroid I have suffered constantly with awful side effects on firstly levo and later ndt. I couldn't tolerate more than 25 mcg levo and didnt feel great on that. Got an endo to prescribe NDT and managed to get to 1 3/4 tablets (slowly - and blood test result perfect) then the side effects started. Over heating, stiff neck, pain in left hand back, the list goes on. I'd try my best to tolerate but it would get worse so eventually I'd reduce by 1/4 tablet. I'd have a few days, maybe a week, where I wouldn't have side effects then they'd start again. I'd try and bear it, ultimately couldn't, drop another 1/4 and on it's gone. I couldn't hear the pain at the top of my neck last week and the feeling that my neck was stiff and elephant sized I'm now on 1/4 tablet. Neck is still not back to normal and praying that will happen as I can't take any less!! Anyone had similar experiences? I don't seem to tolerate anything very well. I tried armour and that was awful. Naturethroid I'm taking. I'm at my wit's end and just don't know what else to do or why this is happening to me. Everyone seems to be able to find something they can tolerate without side effects - except me !! Haven't seen the endo for months and last time he just to!d me to try every ndt brand to see which one is best and seems convinced I won't like t3 for reasons I'm not sure I understand. Has anyone else experienced failing with levo and ndt but t3 was ok ?
Thx for any help. Xx
