On 1st Oct 18 I got blood test results. I’d changed from Levo to NDT 9 weeks ago.
My readings on 1st October:
T4 7.7 (7.86-14.41)
TSH 4.96 (0.35-5.50)
T3 4.8 (3.7-6.0)
I thought I would increase slightly as T4 was low and room for T3 to increase to bring TSH to nearer 1.0 after checking this out with you guys
I increased by a smidgin. A small bite of a NDT as only had 60mg at home.
Yesterday I collapsed at home. Not fainted. I had severe weakness, especially in my legs. I couldn’t walk. My GP called for ambulance and they took me to A&E. They took bloods.
Today I have my results:
T4 9.1 (7.86-14.41)
TSH 0.93 (0.35-5.50)
T3 6.01 (3.7-6.0)
I’m going to take that extra bite every other day now I was thinking, to bring down the high T3?
I don’t understand why I lost so much strength so quickly yesterday. My legs were tingling like crazy. The door bell went. I got up to answer the door and my legs crumbled beneath me. I spent the rest of the day clinging onto door frames and walls as I couldn’t keep myself up. This also happened this summer. I thought NDT was helping me as after months of being very weak I picked up. So much so I actually went out for a few walks. However, what ever happened yesterday has alarmed me. A&E have no idea what’s gone wrong and nor my GP either
Has anyone ever had this sort of thing happen to them.
