I have been complaining of aching muscles for ages ,which have been making me depressed.......limping up and down stairs step by step unable to carry anything as needing to hold on to the handrail.
I decided to try a few adjustments to my diet.Had already cut out bread and have less potato,but the night shades also include tomatoes and peppers which I always put into salads especially to add colour and I eat some salad nearly every day.It's only 5 days since I started, but having cut these out too I am walking ....not limping.
We went out to lunch yesterday and when we had finished eating and chatting having sat down for about two hours,I was able to get up from the table and walk ...not stagger to get the legs going.......maybe a small step forward but worth considering if you are in pain like I have been.
I thought I would share this just in case it might help someone else as there are many of us suffering with our muscles.
Have decided to use my time trying some self help as I don't see my Endo until February.I am also reading "Living Well With Hypothyroidism" by Mary J. Shomon .She gives you so much practical information and help.I can thoroughly recommend it.
