    Medicine Change and feeling weird! Should I stick it out?

    Just had my T4 only medicine upped. It's been three weeks and I'm having some issues I'm sure are related. ie, blood pressure increase, headaches, acid reflex, and swollen ankles to name a few. How long before I can retest to see where my TSH numbers are. My T3 was great and I'm on a combination of Armour and Levoxyl currently. Is 3 weeks enough time to see if this is too big of an increase? I know sometimes people say that when they increase their thyroid meds that they feel hyper for a bit. If this has happened to you...when should I start feeling more balanced? I'm wondering if I should give it another week before requesting to lower my script. Any suggestions? Does anyone have acid reflex (heartburn) when their thyroid is off? This is a new one for me. Maybe it's unrelated. Are swollen ankles a sign of hyper or hypo? So confused. Thanks for offering any advise.

    I posted threads when I first started taking Levo about how I got really bad refulx when I started. I have GERD and take nexium and it blasted threw it. It has been about 10 months on thyroid meds and am 100 percent convinced that either the meds or Hashimotos is causing phlegm in the back of my throat all the time, which could be caused from excess acid. I need to figure it out, because it is not normal. Ask your doctor, most say it should not...but I beg to differ! Good luck,
