I was hoping to gather any insight here as to what is going on, so pardon my detailed and lengthy post.
I had my thyroid removed to thyca three years ago. I was ok until I had RAI and that's when everything went awry. I was started on 150 Levoxyl and have been from there to 200, to NDT, to 125+ T3, to back to 150. Currently I'm on Synthroid 150, increasing from 137. I'm gaining weight, I'm fatigued, I feel like this throws many off because they surmise that I'm hypo but I feel more strung out. When I increase my T4 I feel a bit physically stronger but I can't stay asleep nor sleep, and that's regardless of my dosage. Sometimes when I take my dosage in the morning, I feel extremely hot and it can be early enough where I want to go back to bed a bit but I feel mentally wired from it and I don't know why.
I hate that I am dependent on this medicine and just want to stop it. I feel like a magnet and the ground is a magnet and the walls are.... and I don't feel like my old self, I can't conjure the energy to plan accordingly, I'm bloated, but mostly, I don't sleep. At all. I can't take if I'm under medicated or some paradoxically over medicated and my labs seem to always be tricky since RAI, but I never had known thyroid issues prior to my TT so would love to know. Any thoughts? Please?
