I was told that my thyroid meds should be taken on an empty stomach....preferably in the middle of the night.  I currently take my armor between 2:30-4am so that my stomach is empty.  Will it still absorb if taken after meals?  I have no doctor who knows how to prescribe, but have convinced my PCP to write it.  She told me to just go by how I feel.  I had a thyroid removal 6 months ago.  Tried synthroid, felt awful.  Am on armor, but can take only 60 mgs due to heart racing.  My TSH is 4.5 so she said I needed 75mg but can't take it.  I'm really curious about taking twice a day and after meals.  How long after meals?  Thanks for all the info!

Just a quick note to say hi! Haven't been on here for awhile. Trying to figure out what the hell is going on with me.  I felt (feel) so bad.  I FINALLY saw an endo and he took me off ALL my thyroid medicines and said I should've never been on them in the first place even with the hashi's.  Said my levels were not bad enough.  So I have been off for almost three weeks now - can tell a little difference but not much yet. I have to have a blood test in a few more weeks.  Hope you're better.

Weekend was not great - spent it in the hospital with my dad.  Makes for a long day - 12-15 hrs. a day sitting there but I just can't leave his side and I think it keeps his spirits up.

Thank you for the post. I am just trying to figure out exactly what I am dealing with because the more I read the more concerned I get even though my doctors don't appear to be nervous.

did you say if you ever had an ultrasound done? It sounds to me that maybe it is time to visit a surgeon. If it continually bothers you like that I would look at the next option. Maybe it is only affecting one side of your thyroid. You need a updated ultrasound to know what is going on. Don't panic....just remind yourself at the time that it is just your thyroid, and the choking sensation will pass.

I had my first 2 nodules biopsied as they were quite large...1 was solid, the other cystic. Both benign. Since then they have dissolved and I had another and now another, but they are not large enough to biopsy. My new endo said that if we keep the thyroid suppressed properly then the nodules should stop developing.
Yes I feel quite old at times. I am self employed now...I couldn't work for anyone else this way. I kept feeling like I was going to collapse all the time...horrible! I am normally a high energy person. I will get myself back....I am not giving up.
My endo is also putting me through some other tests for my adrenals.
Keep your chin up...once you are treated properly for a while, you will start to feel better!

Hi back at ya! Did you have a nice holiday?  
Are you consuming a lot of salt and might be retaining water??  Also, we get swelling from the thyroid that is like water weight. I would just wait and see after a couple of months before I would worry about the water and see what happens. Besides, you are doing a lot already.
If you use salt, buy iodized sea salt....it is very healthy and has natural minerals.

Yes you can put a drop or two in your bath. Start with two drops under your tongue for as long as you can stand it, then put water in your mouth with it and swallow. This will get it sublingually into your bloodstream as well. It is incredible stuff.
A great book to read "The Cure is in The Cupboard" by Dr Cass Ingram....it will tell you all the ways to use oregano oil.
Hope you had a nice 4th!
