It was never even suggested to me 6 years ago that my post-partum thyroiditis resulting in hypothyroidism might resolve itself. I was plonked on thyroxine - 100mcg and there I stayed. Would I know if it had a chance of resolving, or would I need to come off the meds completely to find out? Presumably, taking meds makes your own thyroid believe it doesn't need to try so hard so it suppresses its function even if it recovers to the point where it could do its job properly. Or am I barking up the wrong tree? Would it be the case that if my thyroid was working properly AND I was on meds that I would go hyperthyroid which would be a clear indicator to cut down the meds? Please could someone clarify for me? I have actually just started Armour as I've had a horrible time with chronic palpitations and am desperate for some improvement, but I'm now thinking, maybe I should just try to let my body work for itself. Would this be a bad idea?
