I wrote just a few weeks ago about the heavy headedness leaving me, and I think within the next day or two I came down with a cold (of course!). During the cold I had some issues with the heavy head again but as soon as the cold lifted the heavy head went away with it. Unfortunately I only got about a three day reprieve, then came down with yet ANOTHER cold (what can I say, I have a four year old in the house). During this cold I had the heavy headed feeling and even now that the cold has been gone for two days I am still feeling the wooziness.
Just received my latest labs after being on Tirosint 88 mcgs for 2 months plus an addition of 5 mcg T3 twice a day which I had been taking for a month:
FT3: 4.1 (range 2.0 - 4.4)
FT4: 1.66 (range 0.82 - 1.77)
TSH: 0.045 (range 0.450 - 4.50)
My endocrinologist stated the TSH was way too low. He said to reduce the Tirosint to 50 mcgs and to keep the 5 mcgs of T3 twice a day. I am thinking of keeping the 88 mcgs Tirosint and dropping only 1 of the T3 doses.
I am of course going to ask my holistic MD what she thinks when I see her on Tuesday. In fact I'm kind of sick of this roller coaster ride and am going to inquire about NatureThroid.
My question is - does anyone think that I had maybe hit a sweet spot with the T3 and T4 during my three week reprieve from the wooziness, but that after the T3 built up in my system I started having bad thyroid-y feelings again? It is worth mentioning that I do not have many feelings of hyperthyroidism that I can tell - no heart palpitations, shortness of breath, diarrhea, etc. but I do feel heinous.
