Just need to post to get something off my chest.
Just recently I decided to trial T4 alone because of difficulties sourcing that is becoming a bigger problem. 6 weeks I did , t4 , 16 . T3, 3* .
I had very awful bowel probs and weeing also. Both slowed down significantly. Before TT I had been catheterised for the same thing, it was awful .Had one in for several weeks.
Sleep was almost impossible because of hot flushes waking me even if I slept , every hour.
Palpatations ,as they used to be, making me sit down having done the slighted thing .
I know that an operation would be on the cards because of the effect on my lower bowel .
Well having had BH blood test 2 weeks ago , all resolved !!! At least good enough .! Even with this hot weather am having some sleep , usual 3am. So hot, waking me . But better than before.
As I get older I am sooooo scared for the future which that will hold with poor treatment if I am unable to get T3
I want a way out if that is to be my life in old age. Inadequate and poor treatment.
We need control of a dignified end . Sorry to bring this negative post but I am really scared 😞😞
