Thanks for chiming in.
I started to develop horrible hypoglycemia about 2 months ago without any energy to speak of whatsoever.. Also I was dizzy and my legs felt like cement.
I went to the GYN Dr and he ran my labs and said I was borderline for T3 Free T3 and under on Free T4.
So I started on 30 mg of armour and crashed with the worst hypoglycemia and all the sx becoming 20 times worse within 3 days.
I called the Dr and was referred to a hormonal spec that said I was adrenal insufficient. STarted me on 10 mg of cortisol tid and it helped a great deal.
Then within a few weeks it was waay too much.. I had roid rage! and gained all in my mid section 8 lbs within 2 weeks.
I took myself off slowly and stopped the armour too.
I found out you cannot treat your thyroid with inadequate adrenals so I have been taking therapeutic doses of cortisol with tons of vit C and other adrenal vitamins and alsos eating a certain diet and resting, sleeping til 9 and doing everything within my power to heal my extreme fatigue from caretaking for 7 yrs straight.
Now I just this past week started again on 15 mg of thyroid med and am doing quite well really considering the last go round.
I had labs about a month ago that showed my T4 actually went down alittle more than the first time but my med intake wasn't continual.
So we shall see..
It could be half dozen of this or 6 of another.. Also had a tick bite 2 yrs ago that gave me a horrible infection throughout my body and I had malaria like sx for 2 mos.. Took antibiotics for 2 mos but haven't felt good since that tick bite..
it's been a hell of a ride..at 49 going on 79.
