I will be seeing my GP in ten days and if I continue at the level of improvement I am experiencing now, I want to furnish him with a comparison list to add to my records. I cannot believe how ill slight hypothyroidism can make some people. I was ignorant about lab test issues until last year but caught up quickly reading Lowe et all. I do realise folks with similar readings very hugely in symptoms and perpetuating co morbidities. I fall into the insane fibromyalgia/cfs diagnoses category in which GP's are still not picking up on an underlying thyroid issues. I am having a lot of success with NDT but I'll talk about this journey a bit further down the road when I am more sure that low metabolism really is behind my illness.....I am still in suspended disbelief of problems even slight hypothyroidism can cause some folks, and assume I was suffering type 2 that was left percolating for years until it turned into primary. Even at the worst of my symptoms lab tests were not picking up on metabolic issues (the same old story) I count myself very fortunate that, so far, adrenal or iron issues do not seem to be raising their ugly head along with the raise of thyroid hormone. I was suffering adrenal issues, I am sure, but the raise in metabolism seems to have helped that (It doesn't work that way round for everyone BTW) I went up to two and a half grains before any changes happened now I am slowly reducing and trying not to get addicted to this lovely slightly hyper sate! It's been two years since my limbs had energy and I had over a year of total crashing issues...i.e. my legs would literally lock up; plus my weird heart beats have quietened down...I don't know if that is my heart is getting used the T3 or actually coming out of slow metabolism. I had the whole gambit of symptoms and, not least of all, that whole undignified and demoralizing journey of being thought of as mad by all my family and work community, and medics. Anyway, I digress....just wondered if anyone had a quick link to a good symptom before and after treatment chart I can use? If not, I'll draft one up out of several models for symptoms. I'm starting on a mission to raise awareness..or at least join with those that do.
