Good Afternoon All
I was just wondering please, I have been on Armour Thyroid since the beginning of March and had to work up to my full dose over a period of about 8 weeks so by approximately 10th May I was on full dose - 2 x 60mg tablets. I don't seem to be quite so foggy headed and haven't "crashed" lately but I still can't get through the day without a nap, I get very tired most days and need about half hour. I haven't over exerted myself lately and try to live within my parameters but it does mean I can't just say yes to days out and I would worry to drive very far as I would probably get weary. Some days I just have to push myself to do jobs and I find it so annoying. You could say the mind is willing but the body is not able!! Is anyone else like this? I don't know if I should take a tiny bit more Armour, change product, add a bit of thyroxin perhaps. My ultimate aim is to get my life back - maybe once we have Hashi's we get improved health but not full health. I wondered about changing Armour to another product, i.e. WP Thyroid or NP Thyroid??? Sometimes the doses of these are different to Armour. How do you ladies cope with that? Do you take 65mg instead of 60mg and be done with it or do you break tablets up? Dont' get me wrong, I do feel better in myself I think for being on Armour over Levo but just keep waiting to feel really good. I have cut out wheat and gluten now in the hopes that will give me another boost. Sorry for the long message lovely people. My most recent tests were T3 6.2 (3.1-6.8), TSH 0.4 (0.27-4.2) T4 14.3 (12-22). Thanks again everyone.
