Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I was switched from Levothyroxine and Liothyronine 2 weeks ago to Armour Thyroid because of chest pains. The Armour was at 90 mg and after reading about how it could trigger angina, and having angina pain on and off for 3 days, I had my doctor reduce the Armour to 60 mg. I have not had a recurrence of angina since the change. I have been on Thyroid meds for 17 years. My cholesterol is 160 with normal HDL, LDL, and Triglycerides. (My ratio is 2.6). I have had an ECG, Treadmill Stress test and ultrasound of my heart valves, and a calcium score of 53, of my heart. My cardiologist said I have coronary artery spasm, and to let him know if it gets worse. I also have 4 or 5 migraines a year, usually when the weather changes. He said to see him in 2 years if nothing changes. The question is; is my thyroid meds creating my artery spasm and angina?
