Synthroid verses Armor Thyroid

From: kkmcwh - 11 weeks 5 days ago

I'd been on Synthroid for 9 years. I developed insomnia, heart palpations, high blood pressure and being outside in the heat and humidity made me feel like I couldn't breathe. My perspiration process was diminished.
I went off Synthroid cold turkey (probably not a good idea) and within 2 days the irritation I constantly felt was gone. I could work outside in the heat and humidity as I perspired profusely and I could breathe in the heat and humidity. I was thrilled. A week later, I went off the high blood pressure medicine I'd been taking. I monitored my blood pressure with a digital bp kit. It was a little high at first but it came down to normal within a few days. I felt great.
But after a while I became cold...temperature stayed around 96.9---97.
I went to a new doctor and requested Armor Thyroid. My TSH was 141.8. So he put me on 90mg of Armor Thyroid. 4 months later my TSH is 1.30. My blood pressure is normal...no more dry skin and constipation.
My cholesterol has come down from 429 to 289, good cholesterol came up 2 points...no statin drugs. My whole lipid panel is good. I'm 66 years and am feeling great with the help of Armor Thyroid.
My email is kkmcwh1950@gmail.com. in case someone wants to contact me about my thyroid journey.
