Last week I increased my night time dose of NDT from 1/2 grain to 3/4 grain and, for the first two nights, slept really well. The first night I slept 9 hours straight!
This week however, I have not been sleeping well at all. I have had trouble getting to sleep and been waking several times in the night. On a couple of mornings, a couple of hours after my morning dose, I felt like I had a bit of an adrenaline rush (nothing major, just like mild anxiety or excitement) and wondered if I might now be over-replaced (although I still don't feel totally well). This adrenaline rush (or whatever it was) was short lived and just after the rush of getting into work. It also only happened on mornings that I drove (driving causes me anxiety at that time in the morning) which also makes me think "adrenals".
I still have a few symptoms of hypothyroidism, although they are fairly mild in comparison to before, but my temperature has finally gone up to something sensible and I no longer feel cold any more. My heart rate is now fairly normal too, which feels really weird after being so slow for so long.
I suppose I am just wondering if I am under-replaced, over-replaced or whether I need T3 only or if it adrenals or iron again. I'm a little lost now and can't get blood tests for a few weeks.
It is a little strange for me because this is the first time an increase has had any negative symptoms. Until now I have been able to increase with no symptoms whatsoever. Perhaps I'm just expecting too much
Any information or advice would be great. Sorry if I sound a little garbled this morning!
