Hi can someone help,
I have been on slow build up to 3.5 grains Armour for 5 months, it's spread thoughout day and fitting in Iron supps for 4 weeks now to help regulate heartbeat. Initially built up with Nutri Adrenal Extra and still on 4 morn and lunch.
Decided to up to 4 grains and within 4/5 days racing heart up into high 90's and when laying in bath it was 117 at rest, although think this was because it was hot. It's irregular and all over place but mainly high, it's scarey. Also started to drop a few pounds. i have had loose bowel movements but think this was the iron and body getting used to it.
So in last few days I have dropped right off with Armour to 1 and three quarter grains but still it sends pulse into high 90's/100 even at rest sometimes. although to contradict that, sometimes I'm having palpatations but pulse 78ish but not often mainly just high.
How long does it take to settle again?........I am doing the right thing? Does it build up till you are pooling it and need to drop right back?
Temp is still generally 35.5 - 36.3 at best. Regularly temp at about 4pm down to 34.4ish when not moving as I am tired and I have to have a bath to warm up.
Trouble is I starting to feel shoulder/ arm ache and fatigue returning with lack of Thyroid.
I cannot consult Dr P at present.
BP 120/70 so good. I am taking Iron/magnesium/B vits and built up with Nutri Thyroid initially last August.
Can anyone advise me?
