Re: Synthroid and estrogen replacement problems
T4T3-I don't know if you were talking to me about posting in the wee hrs. of the am--but it wasn't me. My sleep is ok , I try to really ex. alot and tire myself out during the day, and keep regular sleep hrs. Now with this neck mass I have alot of anxiety, dr. scripted clonazepam for sleep at low dose .5 it helps. But, it destroys my dreams. Once this mass/mess gets clarified and I have surgery , then I get off the clonazepam.But for sleep it does work and it gives me no hang over in the am.
Yea-we are from the same neighborhood hormone hell.
VRL----I am 55 and several years post meno with severe bone loss , hashi's and sjogrens.
I recently started hrt. I use the vivelle dot patch .075 and so there is no question about separating it from synthroid. Different metabolism for it than the oral I have read. To date, it hasn't much effected my TSH level that I can tell.
Maybe the patch would be easier for you??
I really wonder if you have not gone hyperthyroid-with your weight loss and your eating all the time. Are you also having trouble sleeping and are you pretty tensed up, climbing the wall so to speak?
When my synthroid dose was too high-all those things happened to me, couldn't sleep, couldn't stop eating, no weight gain, climbing the wall.
Well your tsh and t3 and t4 should tell the tale , post with your results.If it is not your thyroid levels then---
Maybe one step is to see a nutritionist and go over your intake and then if she/he cannot solve this then maybe they can help you figure it out and think of a referral to a doc who could resolve this. Dont' let yourself lose too much weight, you are probably also losing muscle and perhaps bone. So it is serious.
