Hi I’m 10 days in of taking T3 - 5mcg x2 day and reduced dose of Levothyroxene to 75mcg. This was on the advice of an endocrinologist I saw privately- I will of course let him know how I’m doing but thought I’d bounce a few things off you hugely knowledgeable people who have travelled this road too.
Initially I felt a glimmer of hope - felt less tired and I even slept one night straight through (unheard of!). However I feel as if I have a bit of a weight in my chest ... indigestion/anxiety ... not sure what, no pain, just a vague uncomfortable background feeling. Is it all psychological???
However yesterday I felt flat and tired , same today. Could it be I’m now feeling the drop in T4? I was considering increasing the T3 to 15mcg - any thoughts please?
In addition, I had a cortisol test done a few months back - it was done in the afternoon (after 2pm- nhs endo agreed to rerun given it should have been a morning test) and it was 330. Does that mean anything that my morning result was slightly less.
Thank you all.
