    Exclamation Please help me solve this mystery!!!

    —For 9 years, I took 1 grain/65 mg Naturthroid and felt good

    —Went through menopause a couple years ago

    —Suddenly in Dec 2019, I went hyper (main symptoms were mini anxiety surges and heart skipping beats; confirmed by blood test)

    —Dumped my old GP (who was pretty new to me) who didn't know what to do or how to listen

    —Found naturopath who tested several different thyroid meds (including synthetic)...all made me hyper

    —Stopped taking thyroid and 6 weeks later was most hypo I'd ever been (TSH was 17 and felt crappy)

    —Started taking Naturthroid 1/4 gr/15 mg and 6 weeks later had TSH of 8 and felt a lot better, but could be better

    —Naturthroid recalled for having decreased efficacy

    —Started alternating remaining 1/4 gr/15 mg Naturthroid and 1/4 gr/15 mg Armour with intent to fully transition to Armour

    —Within 3 days was having same hyper symptoms that I had back in December

    Both my dr and I are totally stumped. 1/4 gr/15 mg Naturthroid almost gets me where I need to be, but I still needed more. 1/4 gr/15 mg Armour makes me hyper. Now Naturthroid isn't available.

    The only thing we can come up with is that I had been pretty sick with a virus (early Covid???) in was a couple weeks later that my thyroid wacked out.

    At this point, I'm thinking of taking 1/4 gr/15 mg Armour every other day and see where that gets me.

    Anyone have any info I can give my doctor to help us figure this out?
