Hey my lovelies,
My struggles do continue and I would like consult something with you.
I am really confused.
I have been on 125 t4 and 7.5/10 t3 and started to develop palpitations, breathlessness, nervousness and insomnia, but I also did feel good and more normal (however was still experiencing hypo symptoms too).
My levels were: ft4= 76% range, ft3= 46% (ft3 false low, test done after 25 hrs).
I tried to ride it out, lasted 4 weeks and palps were getting worst and I became incredibly fatigued on top.
I reduced t3 as this normally and it did nothing. Out of desperation, I took less Levo over a week and after 7 days I felt a bit more normal, but hypo.
I ran bloods after reduction of Levo and t3 skipping, only after a week, because I needed to know if I'm high or low.
Results I got were: ft3 and ft4 both =24%. I was experiencing neck choking and a lot unpleasant symptoms.
I couldn't go back to 125/7.5 or even 5, so I tried 112.5 and 5 last Saturday and continued on until today.
Last night it did hit me again, after 4 days - no sleep, anxiety, heart palps, faster pulse.
Went to my consultant, he is convinced I need to keep reducing levo and introducing t3.
As I reduce more Levo, I do become more hypo.
I have two options : try doing as the consultant said it go back to Levo only.
I was on Levo in March, 150, ft4 was high in range and ft3 below mid range after 3 weeks. Then at 5 weeks something happened and ft4 jumped to 90% range and ft3 to 75% range. My tsh was a bit higher so didn't indicate a flare. I discontinued Levo after it. Gained about 7-8 kilos since ndt to Levo to combo change...
Thanks for your help in advance 🤗
