Vertigo was definitely one of my symptoms. I think I only got it when I was hypo, but I'm not really sure. There was a period of about a year when I was taking the 125 to 175 synthroid pill that I just didn't know. I know I felt bad but I didn't know if I was taking too much or too little. In hindsight, I'll just call it a malfunction. The synthetic stuff was causing me to malfunction.

And in hindsight, I wish I had known abourt Armour. My doctors never even told me about armour. I found out on my own. That synthetic stuff just didn't work for me. I'm sure it works for most people, but not for me.
