fatigue



As per 04/13 labs, doctor saw yesterday 23rd, I had perfect T3 and T4 but high RT3, meaning I have more T4 than I need. To correct this, he recommended cutting the lunch dose of Armour and adding Cytomel instead. Sounds right.

I will be taking only 1 grain of Armour in the morning and adding 1 grain of Cytomel 5 MCG at lunch time.

I said I don't have brain fog anymore, that my brain is working, but that I felt a little depressed and could not get up from bed... he nodded as in he knows but that this will improve when we get the right meds and dose.

I am hopeful... my brain feels so clear and I can think straight now... yay. Now I only have to fix my fatigue.

If only I knew I would faint & fall the same day, April 24th, hit my head and develop anosmia. I would have stayed in house!!!
