I take 2 grains (2 tablets) of Armour Thyroid daily. I split the dose - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I was taking 1.5 before bed and .5 in the morning, but the endo told me this week that my TSH is suppressed and that I need to take it more spaced apart so he can keep prescribing it to me (the NHS/hospital doesn't want a suppressed TSH).
My results were:
TSH: under 0.1
B12: very high as I supplement
Intrinsic factor antibodies test: negative
I don't know what the ranges are, but he said that T3 was slightly at the higher end, that T4 was in range, at the low end.
I started splitting the dose as he suggested two days ago. Yesterday, after a class of hot yoga, I had a scary experience.
I left the class, having drunk water throughout, and suddenly had two large static like sharp-edged blobs in both eyes that obstructed my vision. I have unexplained optic nerve damage in my right eye, but have never had this before.
It grew worse, turning into flashes and diamond-like shapes. I could barely see through the spots and felt nauseous throughout.
I suspect I had an ocular migraine but didn't have a huge headache after (I did have a headache though, which was more of a throbbing).
Has anyone had this experience after shifting their thyroid meds?
