Who is on Levothyroxin? Do you think it caused your acid reflux/LPR?
 
I thought this one Naturalistic Dr/friend was nuts when she said that the Levothyroxin is causing my reflux and I should take Armour.
I just looked at old records at about the same time I was put on the durg I also developed acid reflux.
I have been following the "Dropping Acid" diet by Dr Koufman and it helps the indigestion but does not help the LPR.
I am calling to see an endocrinologist because my Internist doesn't understand why i want armour and just says "Its an old drug".
I have constant weight gain and cannot stand thsi constant drip,throat clearing and hoarsness.
Are we all nuts or do most Doctors suck?
All they do is put on on drug after drug and we have side effects after side effects!
