Hi, I am 35yo female with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I got labs done last week and my doc said I'm border line hyper. I think I most definitely am b/c I was STARVING every 45 minutes and eating constantly. I ended up gaining weight and I just wasn’t feeling good about myself. My lab results were:
TSH: 0.19 (.45-4.5)
T4: 1.3 (0.82-1.77)
T3: 3.3 (2-4.4)
Before labs were taken, I was taking 88mcg of Tirosint (liquid t4) at 10pm. I also took 5mcg of liothyronine (t3) at 6:30am and 2.5mcg at 1pm. Due to hyper symptoms, doc suggested I drop to 2.5mcg of liothyronine in the morning and afternoon. I dropped the dose a week ago and have been experiencing excruciating muscle pain, cold hands and feet, exhaustion and depression.
Is this normal? How long should I give this a test run? I feel terrible. I really have no idea what to do. I felt better on the old dose than I do now - but need help. Should I go back to old dose tomorrow?
Is this more than Hashimoto’s? Is this pituitary or blood sugar related? PLEASE HELP! ADVICE NEEDED!
