Hi all can anyone help ---I have had a total removal of my thyroid due to having Hurthle cell carcinoma and was placed on T3 meds until i had further treatment now i have had treatment i have been placed back on the T3 to keep my functions suppressed for a further 6 months making me Hyper i feel well just cant cope with being so tired all the time and falling asleep when ever i can--just wondering if anyone got suggestions of anything i can take to help the tiredness 6 months is a long time to be feeling like this
Tiredness/ fatigue more often relates to a hypothyroid state than a hyperthyroid state. It might be a good idea to get the levels checked if additional T4 supplementation or dose adjustment would be required. I would suggest consulting your endocrinologist for the same.
Hope this helps.
