I'm new! This is my first post here... Since January after stopping the mini-pill and breastfeeding my daughter, I started getting really bad heart palpitations, persistent cough and dry scalp. I sadly lost a second pregnancy in May after 8 weeks. Fast forward to today after over about 8 doctors, heart monitors and Echo - I finally had a Naturopath Doctor (ND) test my Free T3. That test was lower than optimal range but my TSH and T4 were fine. I also have a high MCV and my serum B12 was high at 1,300. Because she is an ND, she gave me an herbal supplement by Thorne called Thyrocsin. I'm only on my third day and she said that it takes a couple of weeks. Besides this, I'm also getting Magnesium Calm in addition to many other supplements. My antibodies were tested also and they were all fine. I was just wondering if using an ND is the best way to go about this from all of your experience? My primary doctor tested my T3 and it was even lower than when I was tested with the ND but they said I was fine. My second question, is if anyone have the similar symptoms that I have? Heart palpitations (skipping beats), persistent dry cough and dry scalp plus I get anxious from time-to-time.
We are still hoping to have a second baby so this is all very concerning to me. Plus I'll be 42 soon - ugh!
Thanks for your thoughts.
