Hi, I am in 2 minds about restarting T3. I want to restart it because I felt better on it but I don't want to go back on it in case my TSH goes suppressed and my endo discharges me and I am left with no guidance on dosing. The reason I am not taking it is because my endo took me off it due to him being a Levo only advocate. But surely if I need it and I feel better on it, then I should be going back on it? My GP has agreed I need it but I feel that I am having to please the endo all the time since he is the specialist. My symptoms have become so bad they are affecting my job and affecting my social life. I don't ever feel like going out and enjoying myself because of the cold weather affecting my joints and concentration and I live like a hermit in the flat, I am 32 years old.
Symptoms that went away on the T3/Levo therapy were constipation, dry skin, puffy eyes, tiredness, cold intolerance, headaches, memory loss, depression. I have heavy periods, since starting them at age 13 and lately they have become irregular. Developed sores on lips and in mouth.
Current dose 150mcg Levo.
Thanks in advance and sorry if having a rant.
