Swollen tongue with teeth marks

Swollen tongue with teeth marks

Just wondering I have been on armour thyroid the generic brand for about 3 months. Recently the last 3 weeks I have noticed my tongue being swollen and scalloped and my speech being affected. Could this be an allergic reaction to this medicine and not enough of it. Im posting a picture of my latest thyroid results. Thank you tsh is 2.2.

Hello Serino,

I did a quick search of scalloped tongue for you - it is quite common here,

you may find it is connected with low B12 - Armour or any thyroid hormone replacement needs optimal vitamins to work properly. I'm sorry I can't see your results from your picture.

I am presuming you are on very low dose of NDT for your TSH to be that high.Tsh is usally suppressed on NDT so it looks like room for increase. Scallopped tounge often indicates long term lack of or inadequate treatment.

I think an increase migth help. Check pulse first. The pulse I find is more relaible than blood test for dosing.If it seems slower than you might expect for your age and weight and fitness level then you could do with increase. Normal pulse for fit young person would be aound 70 to 80. But normal can be upto about 100.
