I have been on 5mcg T3 for 2 weeks now taken in two doses (7:30am and 4:30pm.) I know my T3 is really low and my T4 is on the low end.
TSH 45.90 (0.270-4.20) Free T4 0.827 (0.71-1.7) Free T3 1.49 (2.5-4.3)
Vitamin D 26 (30-100) waiting for b12, folate, ferritin, iron tests
I just lowered my T4 from 125mcg to 50mcg because when my Dr. raised it I went hyper when I have always been hypo. I had all the hyperthyroid symptoms when I was hyper. When they lowered the T4 most of them went away. Since adding the T3 some have returned such as heart palpitations, heat/cold intolerance, tremor, agitation, sore stiff neck and legs, exhaustion, brain fog, and I am super shaky. A lot of these symptoms we have when we are hypo too. It makes it so hard to figure out what's going on. Would it be safe to say that the symptoms are due to low T3 and T4 and it will just take time to even out? Has anyone else had a lot of symptoms when starting T3? Please share. Do symptoms seem to get worse before they get better? I was feeling good the first week and now I feel ill again. Thanks...
