I have been living with Hypothyroidism for almost fifteen years now. I am one of those Indian house wives who hasn't paid much attention or critically researched the medication I have been on, I am on Eltroxin. Now my brother in the US has been diagnosed with Hashimoto's and we have suddenly realized that all of us including my parents are suffering from Hypothyroidism. My feet have been swollen for almost ten years sometimes the swelling is severe sometimes it is not. I am tired most of the time, joint pains come and go with severity. Doctors in India in a small town are not much help. According to my brother who is on Armour he thinks I should get tested for T3 and have that added to my prescription. I have no idea where I could get T3 in India or who would prescribe it? I am certainly looking for people in similar situation as mine but any input would be of great help. Thanks.
