Can anyone advise me please? I am on 2 1/4 grains of NDT, taken 1 grain at 7am, 1 grain at 12am, and 1/4 at around 5pm. i still feel as weak as a kitty, but part of the problem is lack of sleep.
I don't know what to do - if I am tired during the day, do I have a nap or will that spoil my chance of sleeping at night? If i take more NDT, my heartbeat pounds and gets above 80 - if i persist in the raised level of NDT, will it calm down? Or should i supplement with either T3 or T4/ My last thyroid test showed T3 at slightly high, T4 at slightly low and TSH low - this was when I was on Levo at 50mcg, and T3 at 10mcg X 3 a day, so the endo has given a private script for NDT (but had switched ti NDT just before he gave the script, unbeknownst to him).
Not sure if I'm taking the NDT at the right times, or if I need to take T3/T4 as above, or what the hell to do. i take Nutri Adrenal extra, 3 tabs a day, nutri thyroid, 3 tabs a day, 1000mg B12, 20mg CoQ10, zince and selenium - as close to morning as I can since i usually get round to breakfast at after 10, and then Vit D 10,000IU, calcium and magnesium tabs at night - when i remember.
I am getting close to giving up and just settling for being a damned basket case. i feel so weak, confused and drained - I have stopped eating carbs more or less (very small quantities) and still feel like a wrung out rag, fat and in pain and stupefied. Can't take in any more info - feel like I'm dying - and don't much care.
Sorry to moan - and it has taken 3 goes to write this - between rests on the bloody bed. Is this a damn life? And I'm getting thrown off benefits in September - the fear is also so draining.
should I increase the NDT? If so, how much, how often and when do I know when to stop? My last temperature was 56.5 in the morning, pulse at 70. Any suggestions would be gratefully received, although it will take me a while to get back.
