Glad to hear things are going so well! Good advice for others, thanks! I, too, am on Armour and my TSH is below one and I am finally feeling good again!

Hey Sar!
Good to hear your news!

Everything you've said here I can only second.

And yes, the symptoms of anemia are almost identical to hypothyroid disease with the exception of weight gain because with both, your body isn't working on all cylinders.

Never underestimate the value of getting out of your own way.

My thyroid is doing well & I am seeing a lot of improvement with the symptoms! I don't feel as exhausted. I still get tired sometimes but I can actually function and get through the day without a nap. My skin isn't as dry and the brain fog is lifting but it still gets me here and there. 3 years ago, my thyroid level was above 5. Now it's below 1! emoticon

I highly recommend either changing the dose of your medication if you still feel blah or asking to try a new medication. I switched from Levothyroixine (Synthroid) to Armour. Significant difference. I also began taking a multivitamin along with vitamin B & D.

If you have tried/are trying different things and nothing seems to help, make sure to rule out other medical conditions. I was feeling tired again a few weeks ago and getting extra sleepy in the mornings and it turned out that it was from Anemia.

I hope all of you are feeling your best today! :)
