Are they tracking your RT3 levels?
When you tried T3 did you split the dose? I had to split mine into 5x doses as I needed small doses frequently. I could not tolerate higher doses less often. Also I took almost a year to get onto my full dose. My adrenals were fried, and T3 places a demand on them.
Paul Robinson's Circadian T3 dosing protocol really helped my adrenals. If you have not looked into it, I would recommend it.
Thanks for reply BadBear- Only time my Endo did my T3 Reverse was on 05/15/2018 - 1st day I started my thyroid testing. It was 16 ng/dl. Standard range at Hopkins was 8 - 25 ng/dl.
He never repeated this test again - altho he did 3 months of thyroid hormone testing - these were all fine.
My Hopkins Endo gave me Liothyronine T3 5mcg tabs on December 7, 2018.
I was so freezing all the time, hair falling out, scalp itching profusely, skin so dry, eyes so dry - basically I could not stand it anymore.
I only did ONE tab of the T3 - it made my heart race so fast on only 5 mcg.
He had added this as a supplement to my Levothyroxine 50 mcg - so I had combo of T3 and T4 one day only.
I think all of our adrenals are fried with ME/CFS - at least a third ENDO told me that.
I have an anti-viral just like you do - and I used it for last couple months for EBV - used Acyclovir.
But I am worse than ever - I think it is due to high amount of stress also - since March 13, 2019 to April 15 2019 - I lost all the GAS to my place.
I had no HOT water, no HEAT at all, no GAS to do range cooking (hard boiled eggs, etc), could not use oven, or dishwasher, or washer to wash my clothes.
It was 20 degrees colder than normal all of March 2019 -- so at nite it was 47 -50 degrees Farenheit in my place.
I am freezing right now - and it is 69 degrees in here, and put heat on a bit.
Being not able to feed myself, not bathe, not wash hands except in frigid water, and to live for almost one month in terrible awful cold - I only had tiny space heater - I think this is why my T3/T4 dropped so
much on April 30 2019.
We had to be on phone with the State attorney office, lawyers, news people - some of us tried to sleep in our cars - all the GAS pipes had to be replaced.
Just sold my Mom's home so had no place to go to.
For the last 15 days - my throat is so sore and swollen - nothing I do makes it better. My sinuses hurt but I think colds/allergies are around - but my thyroid numbers dropping so much - has made me have chills, hands/feet are freezing even when it got to be almost 78 degrees inside here.
What is Paul Robinson's T3 dosing protocol? Is it on our site?
I know I can't go thru 3 years of this - I am either going to start Armour thyroid or up my Levothyroxine dose
to 75 mcg today - to see if upping my dose a bit will help me.
Thanks a lot Starlily
