We don’t always allow our bodies the time to adapt and heal. We want to feel good and we want it now.
I made this mistake last week. Having gone over to NDT and feeling better I thought I’d increase my doseage a little more.
Stupidly I added about a third of a 25mcg tablet of T3 in the afternoon having taken 2 grains of NDT first thing in the morning. Started this last Tuesday.
Wednesday Thursday Friday I had the energy I had 20 years ago. Stripped a kitchen and bathroom out of a house I’m refurbishing on my own. Starting at 9am finishing at 9pm. Could have worked longer, seemed to have limitless energy.
Yesterday evening started to feel nauseous, heartbeat and blood pressure went through the roof, sweating chest pains and couldn’t think straight. Left it for an hour, no respite so called for an ambulance.
Thy did all the checks, ecg etc, bp was still high but no signs of any heart issues. They did recommend doctors checkup, which I’m having this morning.
I’m relaying this story to say, self medicating is ok but it has to be done responsibly, slowly with baselines and regular checks.
I consider my self an intelligent guy but what I did was stupid and put my health at risk by increasing my doseage when clearly I shouldn’t.
