Feeling Dizzy And Cold After Taking Armour Thyroid
I have been battling with a mysterious disease for about 4 years now, doctors were baffled. however to cut the long story short, i have had dizziness, fatigue, depression, dry itchy flaky scalp and skin, low libido, weight gain, cold sensitivity, low blood pressure, borderline aenemic, heavy periods, constipation, you name it. i recently tried to loose wight for my iminent wedding in july 08, but failed. then i started a reserach on the internet and found that some people can be hypothyroid even with normal blood tests, as these tests vary from 'normal' in UK and US.
So i finally found a doctor who looks at people like me and he prescribed armour. i started a week and a half ago, on half a grain, and then upped my dose to 1 grain on sunday( four days ago). however, last night i was experiencing really bad dizzines, i was so tired that eventually fell asleep .this morning i woke up with the same problem. i spoke to my doctor and he said to go back to half a grain for the next two weeks as my body is very sensitive.
My question is, has anyone had similar syptoms on armour and should i continue using it. do you usually have to get worse before getting better?
