I have just received a letter from the hospital telling me I have cerebrovascular disease. I went for tests because I developed neuro symptoms last year. These started (basically one leg shakes and a bit of balance lost and co-ordination) just before I was put on a trial of T3. I take 100mcg of levothyroxine and 20 mcg of liothyronine (although slightly upped this by 5 mcg in last few weeks as it dipped a little and got quite tired again).
The hospital letter says consider taking statins and aspirin. I'm 47, pretty fit and healthy, do lots of exercise, eat well. I possibly drink over the recommended weekly limit for women, and my sodium levels are good, no high blood pressure. Not sure where this has come from, really worried they'll make me go on statins and take away my T3 I have noticed a wee bit of angina recently - although I thought it was just chest tightness.
Anybody else in this position?
