I was diagnosed with fibro last winter. Since then I have had my mercury fillings removed and afterwards had my mercury levels tested. My mercury levels along with tin (apparently also from dental work) were through the roof. Sympoms of mercury poisoning are aching and fatigue. My body temperature has risen 1.5degrees since having the fillings out. I have spent 6 weeks having saunas and detoxing.
I have also seen an Endocrinologist ( by passed the doctor ) who has at last diagnosed me with Hashimotos Thyroidism, the symptoms of which are aching and fatigue amongst other things. I have been taking thyroxin for 4 wees and already i am not half as tired as I was. Still aching though.
I have come off two Durga I was taking for hormonal migraine, proprananolol and fluoxatine. Took me little while but I'm glad I stuck t it.
I had my vit d levels checked and these were low. I am now in Spain spending 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes In the evening in the sun. I am managing to swim a little each day.
I am eating a gluten free low glycemic diet and have now lost 10 lbs. Not earth shattering but going in the right direction and the last year I couldn't lose any.
I feel much more positive and also feel that there maybe some light at the end of the tunnel.
So now i ask myself , do I have fibro or is it a culmination of all the other things? Has anyone been here, please lft
