Thank you for all your help, you lovely people! My brain fog is starting to lift now after the near 2 weeks of increased dose, I can even do sums like 0.01 x 0.14 without asking teacher!
However I need to get things done asap so need more than 14% brain function. I definitely need to increase FT4 & FT3 levels.
FT4 is 35% UNDER RANGE. FT3 is only 32%.
I have gone steadily downhill over last year, together with hormone levels, I think there may be a connection.
My hair is not growing at all, I have chronic sinusitis, weight gain, brain fog & forgetfulness, left nostril bleeds almost every day, eyes are inflamed with blisters under lids & in corners of eyes. Inflamed, itchy & sore scalp. Temperature down & not steady. Erratic sleep patterns.Indigestion. lower & slightly unsteady temperature, exhaustion & extreme apathy, though fatigue improved a bit with increase of NDT.
Neck is swollen & throat & neck usually sore, neck glands? Also, my cough was getting really bad & persistent especially at night, I need to know if this is caused by NDT excipients, or some new autoimmune disease, or even too low FT4? These are just a few of the new baddies.
BTW, I was at my best (briefly) when I took bovine metavive + (briefly) a good dose of tiromel. But FT3 went over range, & neck was painful & started swelling + cortisol was very low test 9.20 AM. So I had to stop T3.
One way to 'scratch & see' would be to increase NDT dose to 1 & 3/4 & observe either improvement or otherwise.
Monitor my health have a 20% off sale on so as my last test had so many mistakes making it suspect, I think I should order one last test, as it's my birthday tomorrow.
Does this sound like a good plan? Thanks.
Here are results with "Monitor my health".

14-9-21 (bovine metavive & NDT) - TSH 0.01 - FT4 -12.8 - FT3 - 4.9
5 -7-21 (bovine metavive & T3?) - TSH 0.01 - FT4 -14.7 - FT3 -5.4
