For two years I have been on Armour Thyroid. Got RAI in 2012 but since I did not convert from T4 I got Armour instead of Levaksin(T4) .Im fairly active with biking and are used to do around 7-10 hours weekly training. Up until last fall where my TSH starts to rice and my Ft4 and Ft3 falled. I tried to compensate whit more Armour (from 105 to 120 now)but now I feel even worse with lot of trembling,fast pulse and my gland is hurting. Im so exhausted that I can barely climb stairs. And I got nausea.
Last LAB was 1 week ago:
TSH 4,3 (range 0,2-4,0)
Free T4 15,3 (range 11-23,0)
Free T3 4,9 (range 3,5-6,5)
This was after 4 weeks on 120 Armour.
On the 17 of february I had been on Nature Throid 120 mg for 3 weeks:
TSH 2,7(range 0,2-4,0)
FT4 14,1(range 11-23,0)
Ft3 5,7(range 3,5-6,5)
I switched to Armour because I suspected NT did not work for me. On 120 mg Armour Im used to have a TSH below one and Ft3 on 5,8.
Right before my last LAB I was on Gran Canaria on a bike training. I did 3 very hard 4 - 5 hours sessions
and felt ok at the time but now...
My doctor says that since my heartpuls is elevated he dont want me to go any higher on the medicine
Anyone here with some advice?
