    Group, Here's my question -- Does anyone think adding 5mcg T3 to 75mcg T4 could cause hypothyroid symptoms? Here's the background -- I take 75mcg of Synthroid/levothyroxine for hypothyroidism. I started feeling my thyroid symptoms recur about two months ago, and my doctor allowed me to add...

    Two years ago my bloodwork regarding my Thyroid came back at 5.0. It had slowly been going up over a period of several years. I was put on the lowest dose of generic Synthroid. I can't remember ever feeling so sick. Like a rollercoaster ride ranging from exhaustion/extreme tiredness to just...

    Well here I am again. Had my TT Oct 2015. After being on synthroid and cytomel for a bit I started having joint pain at the base of my big toe, then my sacroiliac joints, then my fingers. Now its also in my wrists and elbows and ankles. My forearms are so sore that I cant even use the tongs to...

    Sorry for the long post, but here goes!!! I was diagnosed with Hashi's in May 2002. My arms and legs felt like dead wood if I didn't move them often, like way beyond numb and I was initially misdiagnosed (no doctor looked at my thyroid until it swell up). My doctor put me on .2 mcg synthroid...

    Just wanted to give a quick update and ask a couple of questions! I have been medicated for hypothyroidism as the result of a partial thyroidectomy in December 2014. I have been playing the medicine game for exactly 1 year now. Things are better but not ideal yet. After a few months of taking...

    I was just on the Synthroid website looking around because I recently found out that Synthroid works 100% better for me than generic levothyroxine, and it baffles me a bit. So I found this blurb on the Synthroid site. "The Food and Drug Administration has determined that certain levothyroxine...

    Hello it's me again! I met with my Endo earlier this week and he does suspect I was having a tough time tolerating the T3 in NDT. He suggested back to T4 medicine, so I started name brand Synthroid on Tuesday. I have a question about my dosage. He suggested I start at .50mcg Synthroid since I...

    Hello All! Through out my whole journey, I have noticed at times severe exercise intolerance. Does anyone else have this? If so, what do you do? I love being active and even walking sometimes brings my mood, energy, and speed and clarity of thinking down. My vision also blacks out if I...

    I've been taking Naturethroid for about a month after switching from a T4/T3 combination (88 mcg/25 mcg). I'm taking 90 mcg of Naturethroid and when I tried to go up, I felt very irritable so I think it was too much T3, although I do think I need more of the hormone due to miscellaneous...

    When I was first diagnosed with (mild) hypothyroidism, I was put on 25 mcg Synthroid and felt increasingly better for 2-3 months, then it all slid backwards. 4 months later, the addition of 5 mcg Cytomel, and 2 Synthroid increases have not helped. What might cause this to happen and what can I...

    Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism back in 2013. .75mg of Synthroid was working great. This summer I started to experience a lot of symptoms--honestly manic in nature but more towards hyperthyroid symptoms (hot, hair falling out, anxious, tired, eye twitch, sore, etc. etc.) I am a...

    My name is Wendi, I have been on Synthroid for months and my Dr. as I see now is a horrible doctor. Synthroid turned me into mean paranoid lying psychotic extremely sick person. I said things I would normally never say, I lied and would normally never lie. It changed me completely. I hurt...

    Hello all, I'm switching from Synthroid to armour and have some questions. I had a TT last November and haven't been able to get on the right dose of synthroid despite several attempts to adjust.

    Hello all! I am now three months post total thyroidectomy and have been having a rough time getting the correct dose of Synthroid. Every time I increase my Synthroid I get hyper symptoms and when I lower the dose I get hypo symptoms. It's been very depressing and emotionally difficult. My...
