My doc phoned a couple of hours ago. She faxed a letter to the endocrinologist asking advice on why my free T3 levels would be low, after a period of feeling good and having all levels where they should be. This week I just sunk. I hopefully will get an answer back soon. I don't actually see the endo until June (got bumped back from April, getting in to one here is just ridiculous.) But for now, my doc just wants me to stay the course, in case the T3 was down simply from a virus and will even out again. She doesn't want to increase my meds because I react pretty strongly and she doesn't want to bump me to hyper if the low T3 is a temporary thing.
*sigh* I see the problem. I know T3 can drop if you're not well. I just hate feeling lousy and not myself. She mentioned maybe this wasn't my thyroid, maybe my depression was flaring up (I have had issues with depression in the past). And maybe my antidepressant needed adjusting.
I assumed that since my mood significantly improved after starting thyroid meds, that feeling down and anxious the same way this time too was due to the low T3. But now it's like...great, how the hell am I supposed to even know what's causing what anymore?
Sorry for the vent.
