Im a newbie to this forum and have been searching for some answers here and cant seem to find anything.
I have been hypo for quite a while but diagnosed in 2004. Two years ago I went to a new GP and he did my blood work and changed my synthroid from 150 to 137 and I felt fine and all before that. After the dose change my thyroid had been a wacky roller coaster. I cant seem to find the right dosage and my symptoms have gotten worse and new ones arrived since the new dose. I have since changed drs and now Im seeing an endo and on Armour 120mg alternating every other day to 180mg.
All labs were normal three weeks ago.
The last week or so I have been getting heart palpitations feeling tired when not doing much at all. Today I decided enough is enough and got halfway through a thorough cleaning of the kitchen and decided to take a break and eat something, I was starting to sweat some from the activities of moving things to get cleaned underneath and around. As soon as I sat down to eat I started to sweat more and starting feeling ill. I went up to bed to lay down and I began to sweat more and had real bad stomach pain and a bit of indigestion and also some tingling in my feet and hands. I took some sips of water and starting feeling better shortly. Everything went away as abruptly as it arrived. Then had one bout of diarrhea and that was it I felt fine the rest of the day.
I did some research online and the only thing I could come up with is thyroid storm or the fact that I hate to drink water and I am usually chronically dehydrated. I cant figure it out.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
labs will be done tomorrow due to a call to dr for heart palpitations yesterday. So no doc visit.
