That's what happens when you take T3. But that's actually a good thing.

I found the earlier post I made on the subject, and the name of the syndrome: Wilson's (Temperature) Syndrome. Here's the old post:
http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/20060530/msgs/650953.html It might help to read that whole thread.

Here's a website manual that explains it all:
http://www.wilsonstemperaturesyndrome.com/eManual/

And here's a directory of doctors who will treat it: http://www.wilsonsthyroidsyndrome.com/DoctorsListing/Doctor.cfm

I've never been lucky enough to find a doctor who will treat me with T3. I've had T4, but that just makes the problem worse. This time, when I checked the doctor's directory, there are two local NDs who consult on this. I'm going to make the appointment soon.

By the way, getting 50 mcg T3 was a massive starter dose. The Wilson's protocol starts at 7.5 mcg b.i.d. (twice a day), and titrates to your own bodily response (not some arbitrary blood test number).
