Apologies in advance for the length of this post!
I am having a lot of trouble figuring out what is going on.
I am currently on Armour Thyroid 60mg and have been for about 3 weeks after being on 30mg for about two months prior to that.
It is not helping me at all. I still have all the symptoms I had before, some are actually worse. Extreme exhaustion that is seriously disrupting my life as a mother to my toddler, freezing a lot of the time- hands and feet ALL the time, aching muscles and joints.
My T3 was the only thyroid hormone that was actually out of range. It had gone up ever so slightly at my last blood test but it was an evening test and I didn’t know not to take my meds that day. It was 3.9 from the previous 3.5 but now I wonder if this was actually an artificially boosted reading from the medication I had taken that day from things I have since read on here.
Most recent blood test also showed T4 of 12.9 compared to my pre-medication level of 13.3.
TSH also down from 2.33 to 1.9 although I understand this always goes down on medication.
So is the medication just too low and actually just replacing what my body was doing itself?
I’d appreciate any input so much.
