My T3 has arrived and I would to start to introduce it.
I’ve had a really rough week, Monday I was anxious and had a really bad tension headaches with a stiff neck.
Tuesday the same, Wednesday I was in bed all day as no energy, yesterday I felt better, well 50% better, but suffered a really bad panic attack (never had one before)
Today I’ve woken up and my neck is locked solid and I’ve got so much muscle pain in my shoulders it’s unbelievable, I struggled to move out of bed.
I’ve not gone to work as I’m not safe to drive as I can’t move my neck, I’ve taken ibuprofen and paracetamol to help.
I’m due a blood test on Monday for thyroid at 8am, I was then going to wait until I see my results to add T3, but, I’m in so much muscle pain that rather than wait for the results I want to add it after I’ve had my blood test.
I’m tempted to add some today, but, I don’t know if that is wise as it will muck up my results?
I’m currently on 100mcg of Levothyroxine.
I’ve got 25mcg of T3, should I quarter the tablet and take the quarter when I take my Levothyroxine in the morning?
And repeat that process for 2 weeks?, then add another quarter.
I’m sick of this muscle and neck pain, my ears are blocked as well.
I have Hashimoto’s and I’m gluten free.
