Switched Meds

I posted a while back about how my symptoms keep getting worse despite getting higher dosages of Synthroid. Im hypo/hashi's. Anyway, I got some knowledeable responses saying I could be lacking the T3 hormone. I went to a different doctore today (same clinic as my other ). Oh my gosh you guys, this lady is awesome. She sat down with me went thru all the symptoms, asked me a bunch of questions. She actually acts like she cares and she seems to be rather knowledeable in the Thyroid deptartment even though she is just a regular MD. I told her what I had learned from my research and on this wonderful message board. She said she was gonna switch me to Armour (her idea) I hadn't even gotten to that part yet where I was gonna suggest it. Plus she did all this bloodwork again to see if she can see anything. So, basically we are starting over on this whole thyroid thing. Anyway, thank you guys so much for the great advice and opinions. I didn't even know about the other medications until reading this board. I start my Armour tommorrow.

Absolutely fantastic news, Tonya! I second Midwest1 - let us know how it goes, we are very interested.

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.
