I am being treated for hypothyroidism due to a pituitary disorder. I was on .1 mg daily up until 2 months ago when it was reduced to .088 mg. I am still extremely fatigued and lethargic, have cold feet, am in a mantal fog, am experiencing carpal tunnel symdrome and fibromyalgia. My temp is usually 97.6 in the morning and I am having difficulty losing the 20 lbs I gained. All of this is affecting my work and home life. The doctor says my TSH is normal now and I am being adequately treated. I disagree and want to try cytomel or another T3 replacement. I have seen my PCP, my regular endo and now a new endo. All refuse to try the T3. Is there another way I can obtain this? I am willing to pay directly if I can some how order it with out a doctors prescription. I am very, very desperate and need help!!!! I don't think I can continue to feel so bad and have so many symptoms. But nobody will listen to me. They only look at the lab results. I know this forum is not to post ads or sell products. You can e-mail me at Annak64@cs.com if you have info. Thanks!
