I have been on levo for years, saw an endo at Barts nhs who has now retired. I never felt really well but he was hesitant to give me T3 as i had it before some years back on too high a dose without monitoring it carefully and went hyper which was awful and took months to correct. however i think a bit of T3 would help me or natural thryoid. a hormone specialist i saw recently prescribed novothyral but i am nervous to take it and would like to get a second opinion and intro T3 gradually because of effects of too much before. also my TSH is now at 1 which my previous barts endo said was ideal, however i still felt tired and achy and non motivated and depressed. The hormone doctor ive seen recently said my T4 is too low at 12 even though my TSH is 1 and my previous barts endo said i am best around 12. i seem to remember i felt much better higher but he said that new research said that T4 be at the high end and also it wasnt right for me. He was a v experienced and v nice specialist but i continued to feel tired and not really well. Theres only a few times in my life i have felt well with energy and thought this must be how normal people feel. i am also on antidepressants but feel that the lack of energy is causing me to feel depressed and if it was solved i may not need them. i am in fact on a stimulating anti depressant that only worked initially to help me feel more energetic.
i am very confused at the moment and also very nervous because of going hyper before and suffering very bad anxiety. Any advice on doctors/specialists in London and anything else would really be appreciated.
