Well, you are obviously hypo; and I think you posted to that effect earlier.
Theoretically, the T4 should convert to T3, but there are those of for whom that doesn't happen and we have to add a T3 med. Some switch to dessicated thyroid med (T3/T4 combo), some of us add cytomel, which is a T3 med.
With your FT3 as low as it is and with the issues you've had all along, I'm wondering if you should insist on adding a T3 med, if only temporarily. Having the FT3 higher seems to help a lot of us, particularly me, the most.
When will you be retested? Hopefully not more than 5-6 weeks.
