I am new on here and have been looking into fibromyalgia and my thyroid problems. I believe I am still classed as having Graves' disease. I have a multitude of medical problems which started with hyperthyroidism when I was 29 yrs old. I suffer many different medical problems and have just read some stuff that say I may get well if I treat my thyroid differently to the thyroid replacement which is standard. I was treated with drugs when I was first diagnosed ( I was told by my specialist that I had been close to death. I had not been believed by my gps at the time.I was then told I had to have RIA and so did. I was well for a while but they said I had to have it again. I was given no explanations and told nothing. I had second dose. I have not had a days well health since.I take 100 micrograms of thyroxine daily. No one has ever said anything to me since then apart from when some gp reduced my thyroxine from 150 micros.My symptoms range from chronic pain fatigue, not able to walk far, unable to walk up stairs, overheating from chest to head, gullet problems spasms and swallowing problems, reflux disease, stomach and bowel probs, pain all over, inability to sleep, no concentration, memory poor and loss, unable to plan and finish something without severe problems. I keep gaining weight Unable to remember simple things ( where plates are ) unable to keep appointments. Stress confusion. I have bouts of sweating when trying to move around the house.Is this normal ? Is this within the realm of Hypo probs should I get help? . I sometimes think I am dying ! Could the Thyroid be the reason for my fibromyalgia ? Any answers to my complicated rambling would be gratefully received or if someone could point me in the right direction thanks
