Re: subacute thyroiditis
Little, I feel for you. I don't tolerate thyroid meds either, even when my tsh has been clearly hypo at 6. Once a few years ago, I took 3 days worth of Armour, about 7.5 mcg, by biting half of a half(I know it's not exact). I quit after those three days because I immediately was hot and racing heart. Three weeks later I had a TSH and FT3/4, and it had gone from 6 to 0.03 and my ft3 had gone up slightly over range! Only three days of low-dose meds! I very much know what you are going through-I react to goitrogens that slow me down, and I react to iodine, dyes, meds that make me speed up. It's a constant rollercoaster. I wish I could tell you how to fix it, but I'm learning at this point. I personally believe there is some small toxic nodules in the goiter that easily react to anything that they can use. YOu mentioned you had antibodies-that complicates any thyroid issue as far as the wishy-washy way the antibodies make the thyroid act. If you find a route that works, let me know too!
