Oddly enough, I had normal ranges in all of my thyroid tests, but had a horrible lump in my throat right at the thyroid. Scans didn't reveal anything either.
I had trouble swallowing pills though, so I persisted in pushing to find out why. I finally found my current doc, who decided to 'try' me on Armour thyroid. It wasn't until I got up to 1/2 grain (30 mgs) of Armour a day that the lump went away - I had swelling on the back side of my thyroid only - my new doc said that this is actually quite rare (leave it to a Lymie to have this!).
I am now on 1.5 grains (90 mgs) of Armour and my levels are almost to where my doc wants to see them (in the middle of the ranges). She doesn't believe that I will need to raise my amount any more, but will wait to see what the blood test next month reveals before assuming that.
