I've been taking 40mcg daily of liothyronine Mercury Pharma for the last couple of years. I was given a different brand in December (Morningside), and wasn't feeling great so asked to go back to Mercury. I was told that they couldn't get Mercury, but gave me Teva this time.
I'm not sure whether I can put it down to this. I also have a lupus/sjorgrens overlap and think I might be in peri-menopause. Anyway, am feeling on another planet. I could sleep all day long, can't get on and do anything and don't want to do anything. I made myself go to book club last night, and they were talking about a book that we'd read a month ago...I simply couldn't remember it!! Now feeling quite frightened and very low. Does anyone else have this total fog and exhaustion? I used to be a lawyer, now I can't concentrate on anything.
My local GP is too busy (it takes weeks to get an appointment), and he's never very interested because I don't have very bad symptoms and can normally just get on with it. I always come away feeling like I'm making a fuss. I am also terrified that he will take my T3 away.
I am thinking of going to my private GP tomorrow because I feel that it's becoming noticeable to others and I hate that. I can't really afford it, but I think I need a full load of blood tests. If anyone had time today, please could they advise me on what I should get him to test for. When my son was ill with a virus last week I was giving him vitamin d3 and Floradix, so I took some too. Probably stupid as it will affect bloods?
I think TSH, FT3, FT4, Foleate, D3?
I'd be very grateful.
