I have ME/ CFS, Fibromyalgia and am hypothyroid. You've all be wonderfully helpful in deciphering my blood tests and getting me onto T3. I've felt so much better these last few months!
However, in this past week I've been struggling. I'm still taking my supplements, but my nails are flaking again and I just feel wiped out. My pain has also increased.
That said, compared to the beginning of the summer I'm a different, far healthier person (it's all relative!) but I'm fairly sure I need to raise my dose again. I just...hurt all over as before, feel mentally sloppier, and the other T3 benefits seem to have slipped down a gear or so too since their original improvements.
I was on 75mcg Levothryoxine (according to you guys I was being underdosed on this anyway), and as you recommended I am continuing with that and adding T3.
I have worked up to 6.25mcg of T3 (1/4 Tiromel) three times daily. My last increase was 2 weeks ago. Is it too soon to add in another fourth quarter poll dose during the day? Or am I going about it wrong?
I know what accidentally going hypERthyroid feels like and I'm not there yet.
I would love to have blood test results to show you, but unfortunately I'm too broke this month - Vitamin and mineral supplements cost a fortune!
So, in the absence of hard science, is it possible to judge my T3 dosage by feel, until I have the money to get my bloods done?
And if so, do I (theoretically) just keep adding a quarter Tiromel into my day every few weeks until I find my T3 'sweet spot' (and eventually find the cash for another ream of blood tests)? Please offer instructions!
Many thanks for your help on this matter,
