I agree with rain. It's likely that the OP has both MI and hypothyroidism. The meds worked because they worked on the MI, the thyroid issue is just a new compounding issue that has to be corrected because it, in itself, can cause MI issues.
Correcting underlying thyroid issues won't correct MI. It can only correct whatever additional psych issues, if any, the thyroid issue is causing.
For what it's worth, I take Armour Thyroid (the T4, T3, T2, T1 pig thyroid hormone). Docs don't think T2 or T1 does anything, but a properly functioning thyroid creates them. In hypothyroidism treated only with T4 (aka Synthroid)... even with proper T3 conversion, there would be a lack of T2 & T1. I think it's possible that the reason why some do better on Synthroid vs Armour is due to antibodies.
If you have an antibody reaction to your thyroid chemicals, having four would make the reaction worse than having one/two (the T4/T3). However, only some people with thyroid disease have antibodies. In that case, they could do better with the more well-rounded treatment of the Armour Thyroid that provides all the thyroid hormones. I have no scientific proof, but that's my pet theory as to why some do better on one than the other.
I think there are enough personal reports of that to conclude that it's a real thing that one med can react better with a person over the other.
Many docs prefer Synthroid over Armour Thyroid due to no real reason besides it being "newer", but when I brought up the question of why Synthroid may be preferable to docs over Armour to a well-respected Mayo endo, he said that the reason (in his mind) is that some people over medicate themselves with Armour due to the immediate T3 making them feel "better"... and they go hyperthyroid. He also said that the TSH of people on Armour seemed to fluctuate more than Synthroid. Looking at FDA recalls of synthroid and not armour over the years - I think the fluctuation and over-medication is one in the same. People use more and then run out. Of course their levels would fluctuate.
The main reason I went on Armour to begin with was that the recalls of Synthroid were so bad, I was having trouble getting it. And all the recalls were due to the med being stronger or weaker than it was supposed to be. The FDA also didn't seem to catch it until the batch was near expiration -- meaning most people had already used it. I think that's the true reason people's TSH levels fluctuate so often. I don't think that's as normal as doctors think.
Anyway after 5 months, I asked for Armour instead of Synthroid because I was tired of the drama of trying to fill it. Ultimately, I felt better on it.
In terms of throwing up on Synthroid, I don't know why that would happen... but it is "created". It's possible that there's some artificial component that doesn't agree with you and Armour wouldn't have the same reaction. It's in no way a guarantee, but it's easy enough to try.
