    What's your body temp? TSH (Thyroid stimulating Hormone)? Blood pressure pulse?

    Thyroid affects nerve conduction velocity and body temp. My wife would sprain her ankle so often, she got to just ignoring it after awhile.

    My thyroid was low too. Life is so much better at 98.6°F.

    Ask your local pharmacist which docs in your area prescribe Armour. Visit one of these docs and your chance for success will improve. An endocrinologist better understands the thyroid, but some of them only Rx for synthoid (T4 only).

    Hypothyroidism incurs depression, slow nerve velocity, slow heart rate, low body temp., slow thought process. "Its the gas pedal of every cell in the body" says my fatigue doc.

    Most infections don't like heat, but love low body temp. You can fight off infections much better @ 98.6°F. Doc also stated, "The body's enzymes operate best @ 98.6°F"

    The liver makes <3000 enzymes. My chloresterol was very high. My fatigue doc predicted that when I get my thyroid levels working that my liver will "burn up" the extra chloresterol and sure enuf...all down to normal. Ear wax also is much improved. <- symptom of high chloresterol.

    I rinse my ears out w/ warm/hot shower water every day...but would daily see white paint around the ear canal.
    I use Q-Tips, but would often touch and damage the ear drum...dont admit this to a ear-nose and throat specialist as you will get a speech...

    The wax problem has greatly improved.

    It was my fatigue doc that first mentioned this to me. Chloresterol is a waxy lipid, so it makes sense. Awful to think of that stuff building up in the arteries too. Lipitor is not the answer as it shuts down an enzyme in the liver that manf chloresterol and uses up lots of Co-Q10. Always supplement Co-Q10 with any statin drug...or...get your thyroid optimized.
