Hi everyone; I am newly diagnosed and probably should thank the dr for thinking of it, because i went in with something else entirely. I was put onto 25 mcg (the dr persuaded me because i didnt want anything at all) and shes put me up to 50mcg after 2 weeks. So far Im noticing practically nothing, but Im on this site because i knew the whole thing was a big deal as my daughter has been overactive since she was 13 and still (in my opinion) at 20 isnt properly well. I was told that either my T3 or my T4 was way over what it should be, but that the other (T3 orT4) was within range, which indicated massive compensation.
I really dont sleep well and having discovered the adrenal test Im having that done hoping that dealing with my suspected exhausted adrenals will help solve the problem. My question is; if (I suspect when) i get the results telling me that they need some support, what do i do about the neds i am on? (currently 50mcg levothyroxine). Before i went on meds i was getting slightly tireder that usual (but i thought that was my sleep patterns) and feeling the cold a great deal. As i say apart from that i havent noticed any symptoms.
Thank you for reading all this......... and grateful for any words of wisdom.
