Heart palpitation on Armour

Did anyone experience bad heart palpitations while on Armour thyroid? I had been on Armour last 3 years. I do get occational palpitations, but its been really bad lately.

Do you have any other symptoms?  Please post your thyroid related test results and reference ranges shown on the lab reports for the last two sets of results.  What was the diagnosed cause for your hypothyroidism?

No, I don't have any other symptoms. I'm waiting for the lab report, I should have it on Monday. The one had 8 months back was perfectly normal.I have hashi, I had a major surgery few years back and was on lots antibiotics for a month, later on I ended up having a messed up immunity with hashi.
I think you are either on too low or too high a dose. It could be that you are not converting T4 to T3 and have a high Reverse T3.,  In that case you would lower your Armour and introduce T3 only. Hopefully your labs will shed a lot of light.,.

Before we diagnose and treat meera I think it would be a lot better if we waited for some test results to evaluate.
