    Question Thyroid and muscle weakness?

    I used 12 mcg t3 and 25 mcg t4.

    my body is heavy. I'm experiencing muscle weakness.

    Do these doses make these side effects?

    12 micrograms? Do you mean 120?

    You would not feel anything with 12 mcg. The average male naturally produces 25, so that 12 wouldnt even shut you down.

    With respect to muscle weakness, I'm not sure what you mean. Are you unable to lift as much, or are you feeling some tension in your muscles. It's not uncommon for T3 to cause muscles in the thigh area and lower back to slightly feel tensed or uncomfortable when moving around. Usually felt more at night when tossing and turning in bed. But this is temporary and nothing to be alarmed about generally.

    Please provide accurate doses of what you're taking.

    Do you take them to treat a thyroid condition?

    If your thyroid levels are poor you will feel like absolute shit constantly and feel extremely sluggish, sometimes you might develop a mild asthma/ slowed breathing (personal observation) which is a very good indicator of poor thyroid levels. T3 increases the sensitivity of the b adrenergic system which has huge effects on bronchodilalation , painkilling and fatigue. Another shitty thing about this is you respond to adrenergic drugs like caffeine and albuterol less so it's very hard to fix (without t3).

    Those doses aren't sufficient to help, 25mcg t3 a a day at least is needed.
