Need Thyroid dosing help

From: Netlace - 4 years 6 weeks ago

I had a complete thyroidectomy in 2003 and have been on Synthyroid since then. I am taking 112mcg and have horrible symptoms of hypothyroidism. My endo is no help. My pcp is willing to help me. He just now upped my dose to 125 and wants me to alternate for a couple weeks and if I feel ok to take steady. He has asked me in the past about trying Armour but has never used it on a person without the thyroid gland. I have many endocrine issues as well. But would like help with this to start. What dose would I start with? What would be equivalent?
My skin is severely dry (legs,arms), large flakes falling off. I have no underarm hair, very little on my arms (used to be 1 inch long), little hair on my legs (only over the shins). My eyebrows are scant. I am so fatigued I have been in bed two years. Rapid heart rate, evening palpitations, hair falling out, weight gain ... This is only apart of my issues. I need help...
