I feel really awful I asked advice last week and was very kindly given advised to up my NDT to 1 3/4 grains which I have I’m so under-medicated!
I know my body needs more but it doesn’t like the increase !! I feel sweaty clammy tired faint my temp low 36.3-36.4 my heart rate the same 80bpm
I was 1/2 Grain in March then increase by 1/4 until recently on 1 1/2 grains so that’s 4 months I should of really been on more at least 2 grains by now ! But looking at my results I don’t know if I’m absorbing the medication it’s doesn’t seem so these results shocked me
Nature Throid results came back really awful they are worse now than before I started NDT these below are on NT for 4 months
TSH 4.4 (0.27-4.20)
Free Thyroxine 9.8 (12-22)
FT3 4.4 (3.10-6.6)
Thyroxine In Feb on 50/75mcg
TSH 5.75 (0.3-5.5)
FT4 14.7 (12-22)
FT3 4.5 (3.1-6.8)
TPO 450 (34)
TG 250 (115)
I don’t know what to do as I’m self medicating, my mums really worried and wants me to go back on thyroxine so the GP can monitor me but they gave me palps bad and I was so cold !
I’m torn between trying to up my NT to raise my levels so I feel better , but is my Hashimotos stopping absorption? Going back on Thyroxine to get my T4 stored up again and trying to cope with palps ?
I’m sat here in tears I’m so fed up of feeling ill and I’m out of my depth I don’t know what to do for the best .
Any Advice on my next step would be very much appreciated.
