Prednisone and hypothyroid
So I am hoping someone out there can give me some advice. Iused to be a very healthy gym rat, I worked out 3x a week and was 195lb with ~14% bodyfat... Then I became hypothyroid undiagnosed for probably 3 years til it got so bad i couldnt work out, was sleeping 14hrs a day and I gained 50lb. I was diagnosed with hypothyroid several years ago and started out on 25 mcg levothyroxine and felt great for a while. But my dose quickly became 50, 75 and I'm now up to 137. I also have CVID and have been repeatedly tested for thyroid antibodies and came back negative, but it may be meaningless as my self made antibodies are very low. I still have chronic fatigue, fogginess, muscle fatigue, insomnia, panic attacks etc. but I work out when I am able. The day that I work out I feel pretty good but I am wired that night, like I had lots of caffiene (I can't handle the stuff anymore). The following day I feel like a zombie, my neck is sore around my thyroid and I am exhausted but can't sleep that night. The zombie state persists for a couple of days. And now a new wrinkle I have started to have what I suspect is central sleep apnea. My resting HR is 55 and my sleeping HR goes as low as 35BP but I sometimes awake with my heart racing at over 135, even on my CPAP machine. My TSH is 2.55. Any ideas about the metabolic roller coaster or apnea? My resting temperature is ~96.8

Hii have been taking levothyroxine now for seven years and my dose keeps increasing. Recently (apx nine months ago) despite taking 225mg per day I still do not feel quite right and my weight is increasing despite walking for all 11km per day. Is it safe to take T3? Does it work taking alongside my other medications? How much is recommended and where can I buy it from please?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
