I can't describe how I'm feeling at the moment but thought I'd see if any of you knowledgable people might have any answers as my brain cannot understand my research as present.(I'm seriously trying not to cry).
After feeling so well due to adding T3 to my T4, I had a set back with some mild symptoms returning and just thought I'd overdone it as the time. Well a few months down the line and gradually getting more and more fatigued. Yesterday I got back from work(only 4 hours) and felt even to exhausted to take the dog out(which I do everyday), also felt very tearful and just not good. Today my pain has returned, achy back, arms and fingers(just like before), I'm freezing and can't think straight. I can't believe that this is happening!!!
I reduced my dose of T3 from 20mcg back to 10mcg about 4 weeks ago at the request of my endo as I had increased it myself due to my mild symptoms returning. Is it just this that's taking me back to being so ill again? Wouldn't it have happened sooner? If that's the case, does it mean T3 will no longer work for me as my initial starting dose of 10mcg was okay to began with, I don't understand how it can go to having no effect at all???
My last 2 blood test results are on my last 2 questions, can't have another blood test until 4 weeks but have an endo appointment next week. I was hoping to get him to understand how my TSH result doesn't mean I'm over treated but if I stay like this or worse will he just say the T3 is not working for me at all and take it away???
Please help, feeling very very lost
P.s. Here is a link to a document I thought might be useful for explaining that TSH doesn't mean everything but not sure if it's helpful or not as can't take it all in:
