Forgive me, I’ve searched about this but I can’t find anything.
I’m currently on 60mcg T3 only a day. I’m fairly fit - I walk 5/6k every day over dunes and woodland though I wouldnt say I’m cardio fit. I did do the couch 2 5k last year though.
I’m suffering from really bad breathlessness at the moment that’s lasted for a few months now. At first I just put it down to lockdown, a reduction in exercise levels and carrying a few pounds extra - aren’t we all! However it’s not shifting.
I can’t really walk at a reasonable pace and talk without sounding like I’ve just climbed a flight of stairs, in fact I sound like I’ve climbed three flights just going upstairs in the house!
I’ve got an iron panel test to do on Monday but I wonder if there’s anything else I haven’t thought of. Does T3 cause breathlessness? I’m on a higher dose now than ever but my levels are good and not too high. I feel fab otherwise - I just feel like I need to get fitter, despite trying.
I just sat for a meal and a beer in the local pub with my husband and on walking the roughly one mile home on a fairly flat road, you’d have thought I’d just run a marathon. It’s really starting to worry me.
And no, I haven’t had covid!
