Meds stopped - about to restart


I started feeling so jittery with palpitations and feeling really unwell that I stopped taking everything about 5 weeks ago. No T3 - was taking 20ug no levo - was taking 75 ug and no HRT 1.5 mg Sandrina estradiol. I can’t in all honesty say I have felt very different from how I mostly normally feel, possibly a bit better, apart from after swimming when I feel terrible a few hours later which lasts for the rest of the day. Which is where I am right now !

I want to do a blood test to get a new baseline and have ordered a Blue Horizon kit. Hopefully I can last another couple of days before I re-start my tablets. I was going to begin again with 50ug Levo and add in another 25 after 2 weeks and see how I feel and possibly do another blood test. T3 hasn’t made a dramatic difference so I am not rushing to re introduce it. I also have the HRT to consider. Maybe I should add that back in first ? Still trying to get my iron up too. Not easy for a ( mostly) veggie.

Hi Helvella That is odd. I received a number of replies. Back on the meds - still feeling pretty rubbish. I remain a medical mystery. Thanks though for the message.

There are several possibilities including members who replied having left the forum. And technical problems!

Glad you got some replies though - and sorry you are not feeling better.
