I would be really grateful for some advice. I've not been feeling great on Armour despite some improvement initially. I just got my test results back. I had not taken any Armour on the morning of the blood tests.
TSH 1.7 (0.270-4.2)
Free T4 11.12 (12-22)
Free T3 3.2 (3.1-6.8)
I take 1 grain of Armour crushed up, in the morning with a glass of water.
My previous results with the same lab were taken a week before starting Armour, when I was on 75mcg thyroxine. They were
Free T4 17.9
Free T3 3.6
I am feeling very tired with joint pain and tightness around my throat. I'm very confused by the results and cant understand why my T4 has dropped so much. When I first started taking Armour I had headaches particularly behind my eyes and forehead. The pain only lasted about a week but returned again (for a few days) once I increased from 1/2 a grain to 1 grain and dropped the last 25mcg of thyroxine (that was three weeks ago). Could this have something to do with my pituitary?
I'd really welcome any thoughts as I wont be seeing my doctor (private for another 2 weeks). Thank you x
