Have had some horrid shakes, visual disturbance, overheating etc this morning - I was trying to valet the car - a mini - so we can fit in it to go coast path walking in about 10 days ( how stupid am I?) THESE were worse symptoms than I've had since I dropped T4.
I wobbled back indoors to do temp tests and blood pressure etc to find pressures between average and high for me, but in range - pulse very high 108 and temp only 36.4. I was due a T3 dose half an hour later.
The only change has been THE DENTIST and his horrid "something-with-a-long-name" which he used to deaden a dying nerve yesterday - without my fully understanding what he had proposed ! I was feeling too faint at the time even lying down to say more than "don't use sulphonamides as I'm very allergic to them".
I have been back to see him this afternoon and to cancel root canal treatment next week as I need to let reaction calm down. He assured me that there were no sulphonamides in the meds and that only very few folk react to the first anaesthetic and then for only a few minutes. He agreed to let symptoms calm down and to delay root canal work until May ( after he retires).
Thus I have had to change to another dentist in the practice whose nurse was at the desk listening. "Ah" she says "there's adrenaline in the first anaesthetic med but no sulphonamides".
Hurrah that's the answer then - adrenaline reaction which doesn't just subside as the dentist thinks - well I dont think it will with adrenal fatigue ! It also explains why I felt better after a top up of Nutri Adrenal plus my T3 dose.
Seems my T3 dose isn't too much then as I would have expected high bp and temps to follow. The compromised adrenals after kidney surgery - surface again with auto immune factors too. Apparently they can give anaesthetic without adrenaline so shall try that in May.
In the meantime could stick to porridge and soup. Slurp.
