My story is a long and frustrating one but the latest developments have left me feeling a bit confused and frustrated. 2015 was the worst year of my life after switching back to Levo from NDT ( advice from 2nd endo) despite trying various doses Levo made me very very unwell. In January I saw Dr P and he diagnosed adrenal issues and started me on his usual protocol of stopping Levo starting nutri adrenal and restarting armour at 1grain. I decided to see how long I could go without Levo, really to see what my body did as I had only ever been diagnosed with sub clinical hypothyroid. It was a bumpy ride, good days and bad but after 5 weeks decided to start 1/2 grain of armour along side 3 nutri adrenal By day 9 I started to feel much better and by 14 days the best I had in almost a year. Then last week I finally had my appointment with an amazing endo who I waited 7 months to see. After taking a careful history he diagnosed me hashi's and told me stop armour(he does prescribe it) he believes my body will heal. Problem is a week after stopping armour I feel really hypo AGAIN. It's just so frustrating and I don't know what to do. Should I stick it out for the 3 months he suggested or restart armour? I just can't face losing another 3 months of my life to restart tablets again. It's worth noting I failed on armour before at various doses. I am On a very comprehensive supplement regime too. I wonder if anyone on here has managed ok off meds even with hashi's. Words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
