i went to see dr peatfield a few months ago as not well. i have been hypothyroid for 15 years also have fibromyalgia. i was taking 100mcg of thyroxine then gp gave me t3 30mcg as i asked for it as t3 level was low. initially i felt alot better but then began to feel unwell again. dr peatfield said it sounds like my adrenals are exhausted and i started taking 8 adrenal tablets a day. he said stop taking thyroid tablets initially then gradually introduce them again. when i take thyroxine i feel so ill, i get hot , i dont sweat at all which is another problem. i cannot sleep, feel like i have so many symptoms. he said stop taking it completely and just take t3 instead. i feel better without thyroxine but do feel extremely exhausted and am in bed by 8.30. i dont get the other symptoms without it. i am very confused as my gp said i should take 100 mcg of thyroxine. is it dangerous not to take thyroxine.?
