Good evening all. I need advice on what to do. I started taking t3 eight weeks ago . I was had so many symptoms I decided to see a private endocrinologist. Who prescribed t3 and reduced my t4 dose. I felt better for the first 5 weeks. Now my symptoms have returned with vengeance. I do not know if I need to take any supplements or if it is the dose ny dose that need to be twitched. My t4 was reduced from 125mg daily to 100/75 on alternate days in addition to 5mg t3 three times daily.
My symptoms are heat intolerance, muscle and joint pain, needing the toilet frequently, dry mouth and eyes, numbness in feet and finger, feeling hungry even after eating and weight loss, dry skin.
I forgot to mention I had a thyroidectomy in 2019. At the moment i inly take b12 .
