suddenly tired again?

Hi!

OK, so after the great TSH news (down to 4.4) early last week, last Thursday night I got super tired again, you know, that incredible thyroid tiredness. My fingers got wrinkled and I got cold again. I checked my food - -I hadn't eaten anything different, and no dental work or other such thing. My doctor wanted me to go up a bit on my dose anyway so I am building to 18 mcg (I had to start at 6mcg time release in April and have been slowly slowly building up -- currently at 15 mcg). I am hopeful that will help -- my question is: Is it common to get this kind of crash and burn thing awhile into taking T4? I'm about to go nap -- something I haven't had to do for awhile, because I feel like I am about to fall over. I didn't miss this at all! Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Re: suddenly tired again?

Yes, it's extremely common to have yoyo symptoms until your levels are optimal. Your TSH is still high. You have a ways to go yet. Hope you get there ASAP.

Re: suddenly tired again?

Thank you! I figured, but it is REALLY frustrating. Being tired again. Rapid heartrate too. Fun. I had blocked out how crappy I used to feel! I'll be up to 18 mcg tomorrow and hopefully that will help!
Thank you!

Re: suddenly tired again?

Hi Katpurs! I'm sorry to hear that you are crashing too! That sucks! Yucky. It sounds like a crash to me. The shallow breathing/ hard to breath/ rapid heartbeat/ muscle achy/ extreme tiredness, of course/ and so forth. Joy. I still can't temp regulate either. I get cold fast, and too hot fast. Very fun. Yuck. I hope that you get your results back, and that they'll let you go up if you need to. My doctor wants me to go up, I just have to do it very very slowly because my body can't deal with this stuff fast.
Oh I hope you feel better REALLY soon! And we will STAY feeling great! Please let me know how it is going!

EXACTLY!!!!! The steamroller effect! That is a perfect way of putting it, and it really does feel like three steps back. Like I was just starting to get my world going again and WHAM.
Thank you for making me laugh (I have a great steamroller image going) and for sharing. It SO helps to know that you aren't alone!!!

Re: suddenly tired again?

ive been feeling the exact same way lately, as far as i know my labs have been within normal range for over a year now but i still have bad weeks. ive been on synthroid .05 for the whole time and really dont want to increase unless its really nessisary. but i know this sucky feeling of always wanting to sleep.

Re: suddenly tired again?

I am in the middle of a crash as well. I was feeling better for almost a month (but it was between blood tests so I have no idea what my blood levels were while I was feeling good). I feel like crying because I was so happy to be feeling like myself again. It's good to know that this is at least "par for the course" and I am not the only one this happens to. You all described exactly how I am feeling!
