I woke up this morning at 9;15 A.M nd began eating breakfast: oatmeal with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, raisins and blackberries and 2 glasses of O.J, with a raw egg beat into them, via a mixer. So, the phone rings and it's a buddy of mine, whose brother recently died, and we began an hour+long conversation. Make a long story short, I forgot the rest of my breakfast. So, comes noon and I gotta swallow my 15 mcg of T3, which I had totally forgotten about thirty minutes previously when I gobbled down the rest of my breakfast. I thought nothing of it and swallowed the three 5mcg T3 pills, as I had been, recently, swallowing the three T3 pills a half-hour after my T4 pill many previous night's.
I go into my office, my workroom, I'm (still) a writer, I think, I hope, but it's hard to tell anymore I do so little writing (thinking) because of hypo. Anyway, as soon as I sit down I feel as if I'm gonna faint, makes no sense but then, the index finger on my left hand suddenly turns numb and then the thumb and I know something's gone wrong? I keep rubbing the thumb and index finger and try to think of what I could have eaten that would give me this adverse a reaction but the finger and thumb keep me busy.
I get up, mad, and go into my garage, where I have a speed-bag and a heavy bag. I am an ex-pro boxer and I was mad. I was confused and groggy, just like one time, back in the 60's, when I was just about to turn pro after just losing a split decision in the finals of the New Mexico golden gloves, and another boxer hit me in a sparring match and I saw stars for twenty minutes, even when I was punching the bags, which went on this morning, until I stopped, even as the numbness in my left hand was now gone but I was still dizzy and couldn't “see” straight.
I went into my bedroom and laid down and it took maybe a half-hour to feel “awake” enough to get up.
Since then, I have tried to think what happened and what possible food I could have eaten that would decimate me so. Anyone have any clues? I'm thinking of cutting my two 15 mcg doses of T3 to 10 mcg doses, three times a day, because I get cold hands and feet after 8-hours of taking my dose and, as we all know, the thyroid controls the metabolism
