Hi Every one.
Don't want to bore you all but I had been feeling so many body aches and pains particularly in my legs and feet. I am a horrific 5 stone over weight and no matter what can not lose weight I lead a busy life and people have always said they don't know where I get the energy from. Shear determination I think, because that is not how I feel. about 5 years ago I thought I had something wrong with my immune system as I had 27 coughs and colds in 1 year. As I worked with children it was dismissed as that as the cause and I was not sent for tests my blood pressure was a bit high and I was put on a water tablet each morning, at first this seemed to help with the pains I was getting in my hands,arms and feet. I had already had an operation for carpel tunnel.Then 2 years ago I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. The amount of levothyroxin I take has increased to 125mg. However the aches and pains sometimes so debilitating were something I thought I would have for life it could hurt just to lift my arms or turn my neck. My knees were swollen and painful which I thought was arthritis. So I was unsure if this was the cause of the pains, cramps and muscle aches or the hypothyroid condition. I was sent for some tests and inflammation in my blood was found so I took a weeks ibuprofen 3 times a day. The result was my knees were so much better and I could move freely. Now for the interesting bit.--- The chemist gave me a different brand of Levothyroxin instead of Mercury which he didn't have he gave me 100mg of Almus and 25mg of Mercury as they are the only ones that make 25mg. I felt so much better and discussed with my doctor and the chemist who cut 50mg of Almus in half so that I get 125 mg of Almus Brand. I have always taken my tablets at about 4o'clock in the morning so they don't interfere with any other medication. The results is I feel so much brighter in my self and believe I can do the things I want without tremendous effort and pain. I do believe the problems I have now are just due to the overweight so if any one has any solutions for this one i would love them forever.
