My current endo had me on levothyroxine then switched me to armour but I came out in hives. I'm currently on 2.5 grains of nature thyroid per day. But still been getting lots of symptoms. I go through cycles one week I'm absolutely exhausted + can't get out of bed even though I have had 8/9hrs sleep, depressed, brain fog. The following week I have insomnia, anxious, irritable.
My libido is non exsistent. I have forgotten what normal feels like. My current endo says my bloods look fine that it is because I have moved from the uk to the USA I'm having problems adjusting! This is absolute bollocks as I feel very settled and have lived in many countries. So I have decided to look for a new endo. I had an appointment with her yesterday and she seemed baffled that I had ever been put on T3 + T4 replacement like armour and nature thyroid and says she would only use those products on very unique cases. She said it is outdated practice to use these products and the body should be able to convert T3 into T4 (sorry if I have got this the wrong way round). She is going to do new blood work vit d + b12 testing, also a scan on the thyroid. Then she said she is going to start me on synthroid. I'm willing to try anything as been feeling SO crappy but which doctor is right!! I don't want to have another year of trying new meds + changing the doses + still come out the other end feeling like this!! Please if anyone can help me I would appreciate it, thank you
