    I needed to get a refill from my doctor for my thyroid meds. He said I needed to get my blood checked. I had it done last week and this week they called to say my thyroid is low and I need to see the doctor. I have an appt. on Friday. I've been on Armour Thyroid for a few years now. Why would it all of a sudden be low? That's probably why I've been falling asleep sitting up lately. Has this happened to anyone here?

    you may just need an increase in your medication. I have Hashimoto's and I will need to increase my meds over time. This is pretty common. Has it been awhile since your levels were checked? Probably nothing to worry about and it's good that you have an appointment with your doc on Friday.

    Take care,

    Yes, it's been a while since my thyroid was checked. Does low thyroid have a connection with FMS?
