Hang on just a minute! I use both the fibro forum and this one and, until your post suggesting that all fibro is caused by a thyroid problem, there has been no problems at all. I suggested that not all fibro patients have a thyroid problem then get replies basically saying that I am wrong. A few others also do not believe it is their thyroid that is the cause and immediately they are told they clearly don't want to be well! Can you blame them for going on the defensive?
By all means, if you truly think that the only way forward is to pursue one avenue of thought, you do that, but don't expect everyone else to think the same.
I personally believe I may well have a thyroid issue, albeit at the milder end of the scale. I also believe I may have an adrenal problem.
My mother has had ME since I was 14; there is nothing wrong with her thyroid. She has had two seperate bouts of ME both of which were specifically diagnosed and given specific names under the ME umbrella.
I am sorry that you honestly think that so many people do not want to be well or to explore every possibilty out there in regards to possible causes, but to state that to them when you have no facts to back it up is unsupportable. I go out of my way to do research, work with the doctors who are trying to help (granted there are always some that seem to not want to get involved....find another who will) and NEVER give up in the hope of being as well as I was not all that long ago.
To be honest, I chose not to respond any further in that post as it seemed to be upsetting to some but to then come on this site and find you slating them here too is by far the worst thing of all. You're acting like a child.
I can only hope that the admins close both this thread and the one on fibroaction and this can be gotten over because it's left a sour taste in my mouth.
