water retension

Aug 24, 2008 - 3 comments

seeming to keep on some water weight.  Weighed last night at 147.2 and this a.m. I was 144.2  - Drinking more water today and curbing the soda.  Trying to see if that will help.  I weighed 130 in April.  I miss those days!

Edema

Aug 23, 2008 - 0 comments

Well - took the kids to the circus and the wierdest thing happened.  One leg began swelling and made it hard to walk.  It was visibly swollen and the calf muscle would not move when pressed.  The other leg was fine.  My thyroid was swollen that day too, but no more than it had been.  I propped it up for about 20 minutes and it went down.  That was a little bit scary!  Going to mention this to the doc.

Nightmares / Vivid Dreams??

Aug 19, 2008 - 2 comments

Well - don't know if it is related to my Armour or not, but for the past 2 nights, I have had very vivid dreams and one was most definitely a "nightmare".  I did notice that the one last night, when I woke (at 1:47 a.m.) what I was dreaming was sort of on TV too. I fell asleep with the TV on and when I woke, it was on a show about paranormal activity.  LOL - I guess I was stirring in my sleep and could actually hear the TV which prompted my dream?  I also have a little left arm ache, like a joint or bone ache but that could also be from sleeping last night.  We will see.  I like the Armour.  When I had the dream last night, I did get up and my thyroid was very swollen.  It is not as bad now.  I also missed my noon dose of 1/4 grain Armour yesterday.  Got busy at work and just forgot!

Fatigue

Aug 18, 2008 - 4 comments

Only had fatigue at night --  Wow - I am loving Armour so far.  My swelling thyroid is still there, but, most of the other symptoms are gone.  I am only tired now when I am supposed to be (after about 8:00 p.m.)
