I joined Health Unlocked 2 years ago. I will be 60 in a few weeks time. I had been reading the various Hadhimotos posts and set about improving my B12, D, and trying to optimise my thyroid test levels.
I was not sleeping, despite being very tired, with low cortisol levels so also tried to get help with adrenal function, since everything for me is on a go slow.
Latest results show serum B12 now up to 530, D at 70, TSH 4.33, FT4 16.1, FT3 3.9, 9am cortisol 254. Had Addisons and Cushings test and private saliva test, so although Cortisol is on the lower end of normal, all seems in order so no further treatment is being offered. I have been told to see a Rheumatologist.
So now I am awake in the middle of the night yet again, unable to sleep despite not really sleeping last night and despite being out in the fresh air all day,
I have persistent sticky post nasal drip that irritates when I lie down so that I can't fall asleep and eventually makes me feel nauseous.
I grind my teeth so much that I cracked a large molar, got an abscess and then lost the tooth 2 months ago.
Now my jaw keeps getting stuck and is clicking like crazy, not sure why.
I am at a loss as to what to do next. I take Levo 100 4 days and 125 3 days. I did try to play with the dose but increases gave me strange heart flutters, decreases bring on more aches and pains especially plantar fasciitis
I think it is time to move on. I want to feel bouncy, I want to have emotions again, I want to sleep, preferably in the same bed as my husband but my night owl habits prevent this.😊 It is now 02:10, again!
So, I thought, maybe I should try some T3, but, I think NDT would be better. Please can you share with me the accredited suppliers that Thyroid rebels can buy these medications from.
Any other advice warmly received
Thank you for all your help.
