Last month my endo told me had "subclinical hypothyroidism." I have Hashi's and have had a partial thyroidectomy to remove a pretty large nodule. My numbers have been on the edge the last couple of times, but I have tons of symptoms. The worst being that I tremor all the time, and it worsens with increased physical activity. Anyway, I asked them to treat me instead of the numbers, and I asked to use the Armour instead of synthroid. I had to go through all kinds of testing and was finally diagnosed and am being treated for atrial tacchycardia before they would give me anything -they were concerned that it would make my tacchycardia worse. I am on 1/2 of a 32 mg tablet. Is it even worth taking it? If they don't give uou a proper dose, then how can they tell if it is going to work or not? Very frustrating, and in the meantime I still get to continue to feel like crap! What should I do? I have a follow -up appointment in about 10 days.
