I had the right side of my thyroid removed on April 23rd of this year, the other side was removed in 2004. I had a 2 milimeter lesion that was malignant this time but it was so small that my Dr. told me I don;t have to have the radioactive iodine or anything done. I started with 112mgs of levothyroxine but I have too much pain on feet and arms, my arms weigh a lot, headaches and very low energy. Some years ago I tried the Armour and I felt wonderful.
I weigh 182 and my height is 5ft. 6 inches tall. I need to know how much Armour I have to take since I am going to start it next week. Also if its true that I have to divide the dose and take it twice a day because it peaks in 4 hours.Should I test my TSH before changing to Armour? Thank You Ileana Tapia
