I know that this will probably be short lived but can anyone explain why this is. I have been taking Armour for a few years now and before that I was taking Levothyroxine after being diagnosed hypothyroid 12 year ago. Three days ago I decided I had had enough of feeling ill and stopped taking the Armour. I had been increasing the dose over the last year, following treating my adrenals, based on my temperature that just seems to be getting lower. I saw Dr P about 18 months ago and this was based on his advise. Before I stopped the Armour my temp was 35.4. I had been taking 3/4 grain in the morning and 1/2 grain before bed.
This morning, without Armour for 3 days, my temperature is 36.6! I am now wondering if it was the Armour that was suppressing my thyroid and making things worse. Perhaps it was just my adrenals that were causing the symptoms and raised TSH.
