After being messed around by a TSH blood test wielding junior endocrinologist for 12 months I found a very experienced, up-to-date and respected endo who agreed to treat me based on my symptoms (hooray!!) as long as I committed to adhering to a series of T4 / T3 experiments. Which I did, over a period of 4 months. Ugh! In all that time I think I experienced a total of about 1/2 day feeling really well, energetic, alive and in my own body. It was bliss, but brief. The rest of the time has been various levels of low-grade brain fog, chronic body pain, grinding exhaustion and deep sadness and anger at my ongoing loss of good health. Grief really. But I have persisted, kept working at my relatively low-stress receptionist job for a fifth of my old salary (2 years ago I was a senior manager in a global business) and just kept reading and advocating for my own health. During that 4 months I unfortunately got the flu twice, despite the flu shot, and had to be shot full of iodine for a cat scan as they thought I had a horrible chronic lung condition, which I didn’t, thankfully. But the iodine apparently shuts down your thyroid and throws the tests out of whack for a while , so no point posting my current results here for now. Anyhoo, suffice it to say I feel completely rubbish, but have a glimmer of hope because now I’ve been prescribed NDT. As soon as the compounding chemist is ready, I’ll be on it! Anyone out there with a similar history who is now well on NDT...?
