After seeing the private endo he put me on a 3 point plan. Increase levo from 50 to 75 and keep the T3 at 20 (cut in half) and in 6 weeks take a blood test and if need be switch to T3 40 and decrease levo to 25.
Well I have been absolutely awful and it has only been 14 days. I had two days in the beginning where I felt like things could get better but then it went downhill rapidly. I think initially I may have been fighting a virus as everyone in the family came down with something and my little one and I were the only ones not with a full blown cold. So I put it down to that, then the exhaustion kicked in so I wondered if it could be down to my period about to desend! Got through that and it just kept getting worse. Then the dizziness started about 3 days ago along with the need to take a nap during the day (no mean feat with a nearly 3 year old sat on you) and unable to even cook the evening meal.
So yesterday I called to speak to the endo and he again proved he is human. He didn't have my notes but remembered most of what was going on. I explained and the first thing he said was he wondered if my adreanals weren't coping. But then remembered I had had a couple of tests a short syn something or other which came back fine. He checked to see if I was feeling over active, heart palpitations etc which I am not and then said that I need to start taking more T3 so to take 20 in the morning and 20 in the evening and reduce the levo to 50. I said he had previously said to 25 but he wants me to do 50 to start with and if I start to suffer with over active symptoms to reduce it myself to 25.
I am confused by my own symptoms. To me the logical explaination is that my body is now not producing any T4 or T3 itself and that my body does not like the sythetic T4 at all. Anybody had similar?
