gained 14 lbs on Armour HELP!
I've been on almost every thy. drug searching for the right one. While I've found relief of one or two symptoms on each one I've tried I've never found the "magic" one.
Now I've been on Armour since mid Jan and without doing anything different I'm up about 14 lbs. My TSH is totally supressed, my frees are past mid range so what could be the cause ?
Synthroid worked fine for many yrs. but around menopause I started having problems. Dr added Cytomel and I felt a little better but hair started falling out in clumps, skin was dryer, etc. etc.
Swithched to Synth. and Armour no relief or change.
Thyrolar gave me a bit more energy and my weight was better but hairloss was awful. Now on Armour and low dose Medrol (lowish adrenals) and I feel like crap, I look like crap, the hairloss is less but the weight is piling on. I'm on a little over 3grs. (split am/pm) My eyebrow hair is thinner but here's the weird part.....I have to shave underarms way more often ( too much info, ha ha). I'm 54, female and my periods just stopped at 47 without any menopause symptoms. Underarm hair became almost non-existant. Is that normal ??
Since I still suffer from most hypo symp. I thought someone out there might have some suggestions. I wish I could take a little Thyrolar, Synth., Armour and Cytomel on a daily basis since each one corrected a different symptom. I'm so frustrated, any thoughts ??
