Thank you all (again
) for your responses.
Cutejenny77, the cytomel was prescribed by my GP himself, after a couple of years on synthroid only. I was the one to suggest it, as certain symptoms were still debilitating: afternoon slump (and "slump" is putting it mildly), intolerance to temperatures under 80 degrees (think flannel pajamas and wool socks in the summer), brain fog, slow but steady weight gain.
I am grateful that my GP is more ready to listen to me than simply read the labs. I have had to bring the cytomel dose down, as I had severy hyper symptoms on the original dose. On 12.5 mcg, right now, I am not cold any more, and the afternoon slump has eased a bit, but in the morning the slightest noise makes me jump and I have a very hard time keeping focused on anything--my mind races in all sorts of directions, though my heart is still the same. So at this point, cytomel feels better in some areas and worse in others. If nothing changes, I will bring up Armour at my next visit.
You mentioned your T3 levels in relation to tinnitus. Can you give me a sense of your ranges of comfort? My 3 hasn't been tested in 2 years, but I know I only start feeling better when my TSH is under .5.
