Ive just had a 7 days, without any of my supplements as i was trying to settle an unusual irritation /inflammation in my stomach,which has been successful.
5 days into that regime i started to feel a bit odd, twitchy, didnt think too much ,just thought it was lack of usual amount of food and the gut pain.
7 days of no supplements, i felt very jittery, checked my Blood pressure and pulse and boom its way up for me.
I am on 1 1/4 NDT am and pm 1 or 1 1/4 alternate days, i had reduced since January in line with slightly out of range T3 and raised RT3, and with a view to reduce more.
Usually my BP is sitting 110/69 pulse 66, and standing 116/71 pulse 70.
Yesterday it was sitting 99/67 pulse 91, and standing 114/77 pulse 101
i have been monitoring it today, it was much improved this morning, still feel jittery (No meds at all so far today) but now ive made myself anxious about 'should i take meds tonight or skip the whole day,' ive made the pulse raise again .
I am totally suprised to feel overmedicated, i assume thats what it is, jittery and fast pulse are the only 2 symptoms, and i can only assume that my NDT must have been better absorbed 'without' my usually supplements despite taking them 4hours away from NDT as advised.
Please can you tell me ,is it ok to skip an entire days meds? or should i be taking a teeny tiny amount say 1/4 grain?tonight ? How do i reduce safely please?
My BP this AM on sitting was 121/70 pulse 77, standing 118/72 pulse 82 and lunchtime was on sitting 114/68 pulse 93, standing 131/74 pulse 109
gosh i can see ive really wound myself up about this.
Any calm thoughts greatly appreciated,
Every best wish, G
