Customer Question

I am Hypothyroid, taking 150 levothryroxine daily, also hashimotos
I am being treated by a private Endo, and sadly feeling like its a waste of money, lots of tests revealing high RT3 and sluggish adrenals for which im taking 5mg of HC twice a day and not feeling much benefit, im suffering with insomnia, achy hands and feet, anxiety, and general weakness shakiness and fatigue, had this condition for over half my life but the last year has been awful and not getting anywhere, Endo says its a post viral infection although the tests he did for Epstein barr and one other are dormant, he also discovered a heart murmur and ive had a scan all clear.
I just dont know what else to do the longer this goes on with no answers the more stressed i feel that its not being resolved, just want to feel like my old self again, i was fit active gym running etc its all stopped im just too tired and weak.
