My t3 dose was reduced from 20ug to 10ug 6 days ago and today I am in bed feeling really bad. Flu like symptoms. Body hurts all over, no energy, chills and shivering through the night, have slept most of the day and not eaten but still not hungry.
Frequent episodes of flu like symptoms is 1 of the problems I've had over the years sometimes getting it once a month. But for the last year that I've been on the higher dose of t3 (20ug instead of 10ug) it hasn't been a problem. Even when everyone around me has been ill I haven't caught it and felt unnaturally invincible! Now 6 days after reducing the t3 I am in bed. Coincidence?
It often crosses my mind how flu symptoms are like an acute attack of low thyroid symptoms.
