Edema from....What?

I have major edema in my feet, legs and hands.The only way I've found to control it is stopping eating all salt.  Now my PH is out of wack and my adrenals are crazy because of no salt.  Seen 8 doctors, no clues.  Oh you wise people: any ideas? Thanx!


This discussion is related to questions about salt.

Yes, I am on Armour for hypothyroid.
My numbers were within parameters, but my symptoms: low blood pressure, cold all the time, slight weigh gain, dry skin, ..... we went with the Armour.

Do you have recent thyroid labs to post?  If so, please do along with reference ranges from your own lab report.  Often, just being "in range" is not enough.  Many find that FT4 has to be midrange and FT3 upper half to third of range before being symptom-free.  Are those your current symptoms on meds?  How long have you been on thyroid meds?
