Was Cfs subclinical hypothyroid?

I’m excited and beyond PO’d all at once. Going with excitement for now. Within 24 hours of ordering T3 from another country out of complete desperation and lack of faith in healthcare providers, my naturopath finally agreed to increase T3. I’d been on a microscopic dose of 5mcg cytomel twice daily since I begged for it about 6 months ago. Last night & this morning has doses of 7.5mcg of compounded/sustained release T3 and had a full, functioning, brain-on day. Shopped at so many stores I lost track. (Nope not manic, we have a trip coming up and I’ve done zero to prepare; thought I’d just be tagging along like a potted plant.) Made dinner, cleaned, did mom stuff. Amazing!

I googled thyroid and Cfs and was stunned to find this article referencing ideal ranges for those with low thyroid symptoms but ‘in range’ results. I’m going to print off and bring to ND to facilitate future dosage conversations. Here’s the page; test ranges are about halfway thru article.
