That sucks!

I just had my labs done and my numbers were good so my GP is happy with me to continue to take my Armour. I have 6 more months of scripts left to fill plus about a years worth of meds here. I suspect I'll just go back to my US endo every 2 years for my meds.

Or import another NDT.

Eh, I was on levo for a long time before I started Armour. It may be alright in the end; just have to get the dosing correct. If it ends up that its not alright, however, I will fight them on it. My GP, as I said, is not unsympathetic, and if we're really struggling in six months time, I think she'll go to bat for me. In the meantime, very strange things are happening to my body symptom wise...I'm a scientist, so I've always used my own medical conditions as a kind of ongoing experiment. N of 1 of course, but interesting nonetheless! There's always a silver lining?!?  ;D ;D ;D :D :D :D
