Hi, I have diagnoses of fibromyalgia and CFS, and all my thyroid function tests are 'normal'.
I saw Dr P back in September and he diagnosed underactive thyroid and adrenal glands. Under his guidance I have been taking Nutri-adrenal and Nutri-thyroid supplements, together with Co-enzyme Q10, and vitamin C and 25 mcg of T4. Energy levels improved a tiny bit, but still exhausted and sore.
After 6 weeks, Dr P then advised I start T3, 25 mcg in morning, 25 mcg at lunchtime in addition to all that listed above. I started the T3 on Saturday, and do have a little more energy, but the last 2 days I have had a thumping sore headache that will not shift with pain killers. If I take 5 nutri-adrenals per day, I also get a sore head, but am OK if I just take 3 in the morning. Since starting T3 my heart rate has increased from 60 to 66 and temperature increased about 1oF up to 97.6 oF.
Does anyone else get bad headaches with T3 and/or nutri adrenal? Does anyone know what causes it, or what i can do to help? I really don't want to stop taking the T3 - I am pinning so much on it actually working, as nothing else has.
