Sorry it's me again. I am getting desperate and I can't figure out where I am going wrong, goodness knows I have tried to sort this out for myself but really failing here.
I have switched from Armour (I was on 3.5 grains) to T4 (125mg) and T3 (40mg) in October 2012 as I wanted NHS prescription. I have got Paul Robinsons CT3M book and was hoping to start that protocol but I am in too much of a bad mess. Since January this year I feel I am going really downhill with a lot of horrible old symptoms returning.
My main symtpoms are:
Brain Fog (really bad)
Hair falling out again (really bad)
Feeling really cold
Nausea mid afternoon - I really feel I am going to be sick
Very, very tired
I have posted all the recent tests I have had below. I am clueless as to what to do or change next. I am talking to the private doctor I see who wants to run some more tests and believes I may need DHEA and Pregnenolone. That may well help. But am I on too much or too little T3 and T4. Shoud I cut the T4 and concerntrate on T3.
I apologise for this long rambling long post, I am really lost and finding it hard to concentrate and think. Sitting here covered in blankets with coat and scarf on (I am indoors!). Maybe I have gone really hypo again??
