I started off on half a grain of Nature-Throid about 3 weeks ago and increased my dose to 1 grain after two weeks. In terms of subjective response, it hasn't had a positive effect - if anything I feel worse, though that may due to a cold I've had on-off for the last two weeks or so (off now I hope). None of the subjective symptoms - primarily tiredness/lack of energy - have improved.
Objectively, my resting pulse rate seems to have increased and is now usually 60 during the day - though taking it now, late in the evening, it is back down to 50. By the way, how bad is a pulse rate of 50 - is this something I can take to my doctor and be taken more seriously? I am reasonably fit when it comes to running (no superman though), but would that explain it?
Body temperature (during the day - I know I should take it just after waking up) seemed to have improved initially - going to 36.6 and even 36.7 - but is now again coming in at 36.5 and often lower. Though I'm not sure if this electronic thermometer can be trusted. After it beeps, I leave it for a good few minutes longer because the reading keeps rising before it truly settles, so I hope this is giving a more accurate reading. (If I take the reading when it beeps, then it is like 35.5.) My reading now is 36.3-36.4 (corresponding with the low pulse rate I guess).
