Hello. I just joined HealthUnlocked today. I started LDN 3 weeks ago. Two weeks at 1. 5mg and one week so far at 3mg. I can't say that I'm seeing anything significant yet. My doctor just prescribed 3 mg for another 60 days. I was kind of surprised because I assumed I would work up to 4.5mg shortly. My thyroid was found to be high when I was 22 years old. The doctor told me then that my immune system was attacking my thyroid and that nothing could be done. He said eventually my thyroid would burn out and I'd be put on medication. When I was about 30, my thyroid was found to be low and I was put on Synthroid. The doctor was hopeful this would help me with my migraine headaches, my achy legs and my general fatigue. I saw absolutely no difference. I'm 42 years old now. Two years ago, I began having chronic low-grade fevers and extreme fatigue to the point that I was non-functioning. After finally finding an integrative doctor of osteopathy, I've been slowly getting better. However, my life is still greatly compromised by pain all over my body in random places, brain fog, muscle weakness and fatigue. After two years, though, I am finally having more good days than bad days. I'm currently being treated for parasites, but there also seems to be more autoimmune stuff going on. The doctor suspects lupus, but I need more blood testing in order to confirm. His opinion is that it doesn't really matter what autoimmune diseases I have, they are all treated the same: diet changes, lifestyle changes balancing hormones, healing leaky gut, and, now I'm trying LDN. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm certainly open to hearing them! I'm glad I found this forum, I live alone, and the bad days can be very bad when I'm unable to take care of myself.
Blessings to you all.
