Muscle Spasms - Armour

I started a very tiny dose of Armour last week and didn't feel any different. I increased my Armour to 15mg 3 days ago. That equals 9mcg T4 and 2mcg of T3. I'm still taking my Levoxyl, which I'm dropping to a lower dose today.

Last night at 3:30 am (why does everything happen at that hour?) I woke up with a shudder, and my legs, arms, shoulders, jaw, etc. were quivering and tightening, loosening, tightening, loosening. This is not the first time I've gone through this. If you have been lucky enough not to experience this - its like what happens after an adrenaline rush when your muscles are firing and you have no control over it.When the first endo I saw put me on a high dose of Synthroid, it was too much for me and I had a similar -but much worse (with tachycardia)- experience.

My heart rate last night was not high though during this episode, which was a refreshing change.

Does this sound like the 15mg of Armour is just a tad too much for me? Today I'm splitting it into two doses. I'm hoping that does the trick because I have actually felt pretty decent since I started this dose. Granted it has been just 3 days, so it is too early to tell.
