Labs look good, now what about my symptoms?

So.... here they are ...the Dr. told me they look fine.

Name                      Value        Reference Range

Triiodothyronine,Free,Serum 3.2 2.0-4.4 pg/mL
TSH                                       2.700          0.450-4.500 uIU/mL
T4,Free(Direct)                        1.06                0.82-1.77 ng/dL
Reverse T3, Serum              27.4        13.5-34.2 ng/dL

My CBC came back looking fine apparently. I am hoping the symptoms of these medication will go away soon. I am not cool with feeling weak and worn out. I can't tell what happened to me in the process of taking the Armour Thyroid medication but I plan to get my adrenal glands checked by an actual endocrinologist this time around.

Has anyone ever experienced any heart failure symptoms or symptoms of overdose/allergic reaction after taking Armour Thyroid ? Do those symptoms of weakness, irritability, fatigue, swelling of throat and nausea go away?

I feel like I have experienced a category of each (overdose, allergic, heart failure) ....I just want to know if I am not alone and that after discontinuing the medication (after experiencing what may have been a thyroid storm) ...do those symptoms go away?

Thanks for reading!
