I'm on T3 only and have been great on it. However, every time I try to go above 37.5mcg, I feel a bit worst ie achey joints, poundy heart and headache. So each time I've got a bit scared and dropped back.
The last couple of weeks I've felt a bit "off" and wondered if I needed an increase so last week I tried again, only adding another 6mcg.
On Saturday I was hit with immense tiredness, like I used to get before diagnosed and yesterday I got a weird spacy feeling in my head that I couldn't seem to shift plus ringing in my ears and my tummy felt a bit off and very thirsty. My joints were also more achy.
I woke during the night to screechy ringing in my head and I still have it. I feel a bit flushed but no temperature and my pulse hasn't been elevated through any of it.
I'm thinking I should leave off taking any T3 today but equally I'm worried that I have these symptoms because I'm not taking enough now?
What does anyone think. Has the same happened to any of you. I feel a bit scared and don't want to go backwards.
Maybe the 37.5 is really enough for me and I shouldn't attempt any more or maybe it's time for me to start on a bit of T4 again. I need to discuss that with Dr P.
