Hello, I had posted before. My thyroid had been removed 1996, ever since I was on L-Thyroxine and miserable, last two years on Novothyral 100 (100mcg T4, 20mcg T3). I took it in the morning and from noon , I felt very weak and had pains. So from Sept.1,2017 I slowly switched to T3 and am now on 90 mcg daily in 4 doses.Some symptoms have improved, others not. I have more energy, but it is a rough and bumpy ride and I want to change to NDT now. Furthermore, I have high calcium and high Parathormone levels and am afraid this is possibly due to primary hyperparathyroidism, for which my symptoms also fit. Yesterday I had my first Endo visit. He was not pleased of my self medication and suggested I should go back to T4 ,or, maximum, Novothyral again, and feel miserable again!! ( this were not his words). For the parathyroid problem, he was not at all concerned because calcium and PTH were just still within the range. He said this was due to my too high D3 and I should stop taking D3 until the end of year.

What do you think of it, esp. the hyperparathyroidism? I have slight osteopenia, the scan and szintigram showed nothing clear.
