I started taking 1.5 grains of Armour just over 3 months ago and although I feel the brain fog has gone and because of that alone I felt better.
I went to see my Endo a month ago and it was a quick in quick out app, I did tell her that I did feel better because I felt the brain fog had lifted and that I felt I was more focused, I did tell her that I found myself getting tired early in the day, she went onto say that my blood results was in normal range and as I felt better she was happy to keep me on the Armour but I forgot to mention some of the other symptoms that I have been getting, weight gain, feeling hot and perspiring early morning sometimes throughout the day, some of the symptoms came at a later date, my ankles are slightly swollen, I do feel breathless sometimes, I also get palpitations and sometimes a slight ache in my chest but it was still early days and I thought some of them symptoms may subside, anyway she did say to me that she was happy with me staying on Armour and gave me private script for 3 months of Armour, she also gave me a blood test form to have blood test done previous to next app date, she told me that if I feel like I am getting into trouble to just go to any clinic and get bloods done and ring her secretary if I need to see her.
My endo had wrote to my GP with my lab results with taking Armour and stated that she will not be increasing the Armour.
I don't think I was this bad when I was on 125mg of Levo. I don't know what to do, stay on the Armour or go back on the Levo? With the levo i did not tire early in the day, or have the ache and palpitations and feeling hot and sweaty.
My blood test results for Oct for being on 2 months of Armour, there was no range given.
Can anyone shed any light on these symptoms because I feel confused by other peoples experience on how much Armour they are taking which in some cases are on alot more than me. Considering I have no thyroid I seem to be on a low dose of Armour and yet my bloods come back in normal range eerrghhhh!
