I had a total thyroidectomy 18 months ago, and have been treated with Levothyroxine only. My joints and muscles have been aching, and it was getting progressively worse. Went to GP to request a T3 test, but was refused...not available on NHS! I was referred to a rheumatologist, and prescribed Amitryptolene to help with joint pain and lack of sleep. I was at the end of my tether...couldn't think straight or concentrate, fuzzy eyes, aching, lethargic. I don't need to go on because I know that you all know what I'm talking about.
I remembered reading somewhere that Brazil nits are good for you, so I bought some and ate 4 on Thursday night, and another 4 on Friday morning. I had my first "proper" nights sleep on Friday night, and was amazed yesterday, that my pain was not chronic!
I couldn't believe the improvement, so I googled "Brazil nut thyroid" and found this:
I had another good nights sleep last night. The brain fog is clearing. I went for a bike ride!! I did some gardening!! I'm still feeling good, and I'm actually looking forward to going to bed tonight.
Has anyone else tried taking selenium? How was it for you?
