    I avoid pufas as much as possible. avoid wheat. eat rice/potatoes/fruit for carbs. drink OJ and lots of milk. eat some meat and shellfish when possible. eat eggs with cheese every morning. I don't have the energy to cook for myself or the appetite to eat more than, say, 1000-1500 calories daily, though. danny roddy suggested that thyroid would be necessary to even increase my appetite

    Have you only taken 3.5 mcg t3 once with food last night? I wouldn’t think that one small dose would make you hyperthyroid. As @johnsmith suggested, maybe try a smaller dose, like a nibble.

    Are you eating frequently and properly to avoid low blood sugar? Salting to taste?

    Have you had you had your cholesterol measured? Vitamin D?

    I suspect that CFS is caused by a poor testosterone-to-cortisol ratio based on personal experience...

    Were you able to tolerate Thyroid? I experienced the same last night, I still feel quite hot I took 12 mcg in two doses and was able to sleep only after I took some progesterone. Is this making adrenaline worse?
