I have been hypothyroid for a long time and track temperatures and pulse etc frequently. I have never been able to get it under control properly and have had the best results on high t3, which always concerned me as taking 100mcg seemed crazy, but was the only thing that made me slightly better and got rid of hypo symptoms.
Anyway, I did a cortisol saliva test and was below range on the first 3 readings and normal at night, so the doctor put me on hydrocortisone (5mg 6am wake up, 5mg, 11am and 5mg 4pm). At first I had literally never, ever felt better in years and years, but after a few days a had horrible hyper symptoms (I'm assuming to t3 pooling).
I stopped t3 and 5 days later this went away and a felt really great, but not like when I first started.
The issue is, if I take t3 in almost any minimal dose I get weird symptoms like really sore eyes, brain fog, my eyes feel like they are popping, I can't concentrate for 2 seconds and my short term memory has literally disappeared).
Has anyone else had these symptoms?
Could it still be pooled t3 from high doses in the past? If so, how long will this take to remedy itself?
