Today I dragged myself to the gym and somehow got through my weight training. I did better on cardio. It was easy to keep going once I started. Tomorrow is laundry day.

Feeling so tired, but my thyroid tests came back today and they are normal. My Free T3 is not over range at all. I have to post to the Thyroid Disease group and see what they think. The test results are below.

Previous test results (on 100mcg T4):
Thyroid panel:
TSH: 0.66
Free T3: 169 (230-420) (-32% of range)
Free T4: 1.1 (0.8-1.8) (30% of range)

Results from this Monday (on 120mg Armour - 2 grains):
TSH: 0.02
Free T3: 271 (230-420) (21.6% of range)
Free T4: 0.9 (0.8-1.8) (10% of range)

For the first time in forever my T3 is higher than my T4. I'm sure that's a shock to my body because I have been low in T3 for so long. I'm not sure where to go from here. I'll get opinions from other thyroid patients and make a plan.
