I decided to try Reflexology this week. It was just a half hour taster session & very interesting but painful too!
I often think my hashi was brought on by a number of things. Years of very stressful situations including family illness, a whiplash injury and finally it was a virus that finished me off. Back to the reflexology...
The area relating to thyroid felt fine. Not uncomfortable or anything. However the area for my neck and lumber back was painful. And adrenals & pituitary gland areas were very painful. I found this very interesting. I've often thought my adrenals are stressed dispite gp & endo ruling it out following cortisol blood test. As for pituatary, well that was the most painful of all which is a little worrying. Funny thing is my TSH is suppressed (last checked in January) and T4/T3 fairly low.
When I was first diagnosed my TSH swung from 35 to 0.05 in 2 months yet my symptoms got worse. On T4/T3 combo I got my life back together and got back to work. I still think I have underlying adrenal issues however. Plan to try the reflexology again in a couple of weeks
Enjoy the sunshine everyone & top up that vit D!
