Diagnosed Hypo in 1981, Dr P told me in 1995 I couldn't convert T4 to T3 so since then have only taken T3. A long and tortuous journey, discovered Hashimoto's in January 2017 via private blood test... thyroglobulin raised. Since August 2017 have been desperately trying to get my vitamins, minerals, amino acid(s) sorted, now gut biome. Over last 2 days have been drinking bone broth, writing food/drink diary, gearing up to make my own kefir with the help of Poppy_the_cat. I weaned myself off T3 (liothyronine) from Sept. 2017 as I had consulted a homeopath who said he could make a clone of T3 from one tablet. I took his whilst weaning myself off real T3Liothyronine. I couldn't breathe in summer 2017 (tests showed nothing wrong) from stress & anxiety of potentially having T3 taken from me. But homeopath's cloned T3 obviously didn't work. So over the last 10 days I have taken 45mcg of T3 only.
I have just got home from being in town for less than one hour. I freaked out in the car park behind a shop; but managed to stop and apologise to the woman who I had freaked out at. Turned out she was a GP. I blurted out my 36 years of hell over 3 minutes, her eyes rolled, she couldn't confirm that she knew what Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is. I have raced home and collapsed in tears and rage.
I am truly sick and tired of feeling this way. I can comprehend that I have PTSD (in fact there is Complex PTSD from more than one abuse incident which I certainly have lived through).
How long will it take for 45mcg of T3 to kick in please? Is this a form of Myxoedema Madness?
