    I started taking T3 (cynomel) on Saturday.

    I began by nibbling a piece of one 25mcg tablet, and tracking my pulse and temperature for changes.

    In total, I took about 10mcg on Saturday, and 10mcg on Sunday.

    On Monday, for reasons stated below, I dropped to 5mcg.

    I have stopped taking it for the time being.

    This may be pure coincidence, but on Saturday I also started experiencing shooting pains through my teeth upon moderate jolts through my body (e.g. Walking down stairs, stepping barefoot on hard floors, etc).

    By Sunday night, my teeth felt very sensitive.

    This continued into Monday.

    Last night, my mouth felt so sensitive I could barely close my jaw.

    Today, so far so good, the problem seems to have gone.

    I have never had problems with my teeth.

    It may be just coincidence, but I'm curious if there are any other documented cases of low dose T3 causing teeth sensitivity?

    Other possible explanations:

    - The T3 caused me to grind my teeth unwittingly
    - The Cynomel I have is not Cynomel (unlikely)
    - Just coincidence

    All your teeth or just some teeth? Could be a local effect from the T3, eg by chewing on the tablet you're exposing your teeth to very high concentrations. Maybe try cutting it up into small pieces and swallowing them whole (no chewing).
