I was diagnosed as hypo about 6 months ago. I am on 100mcg Levo. I went to a specialist just before Christmas because it just isn't working for me and yesterday my Bulgarian T3 arrived - I am instructed to take 5mcg 3 times a day.
I took two doses yesterday and felt like I was coming down with the flu - even worse than "normal"!
For those who have tried the same thing, I'm curious as to how long it took before you started to feel better? I am in desperate need of hope! I seem to recall my specialist saying that T3 improves things quite quickly for lots of people in his experience so... ugh!
In other news, I had been gluten free for a while and then started eating it again, like a twit as I was so rough over Christmas with the Hashis, I figured it couldn't possibly make me feel worse (WRONG!) I've also been a bit shoddy at taking my endless vitamin supplements, pre biotic, pro biotic... I feel like such a hypochondriac with all that lot! But back to being a walking pill bag with endless alarms on my phone to remind me...
