What a complete pickle and mind frazzle I am in. I think I have information overload! I am 52 years old ,20 years hypo (currently trying to get confirmation its Hashis) Ive been on Levo up until two months when I saw saw Dr P I had been researching NDT and T3 for about a year, got the STTM and Dr P's book and am now on Nutri Adrenal and Nutri Thyroid. Then because of an increase in body pain, cracking headaches, fatigue, knee tendon problems I have had for a couple of years I ended up last week at the Rheumatologist (after A & E and Xray and bloods for inflammatory markers) who now says Fibromyalgia....no one has ever done a good range of blood tests as are often mentioned here so I managed to get him to do some ie Vit D, B12, antibodies etc and see him again this Thurs. I also have some Genova tests to do for Adrenal/Saliva and thyroid which I got before seeing the Rheumy because of the change of meds with Dr P. I also ordered some T3 after my GP refused to prescribe it basically because I believe the fibro symptoms are caused by long term undermedication for the thyroid condition or I just dont convert. I am so tempted to try with a small dose of T3 added to either going back on T4, staying with the Nutri Thyroid, or should I go on to Armour or such. My facility to balance all the info and find a safe way forward from here seems to elude me....I go back to my STTM book and I just cant take it all in!!! Meanwhile I am self employed and cannot work effectively.......trying to appear 'normal' for my partner but my mind is in a whirl. All the doctore are offering are anti deppressants (which I came off of after 9 years a couple of years ago, dont want to go there again) NSAID meds. Currently I do not want to take any of these meds and am going gluten free, low carb high fat and looking in to gut health.......even more info. Sorry for the lengthy blurb but I have always felt quite proactive about tackling any problems in my life and I have just hit a wall. Any help anyone can offer would be very much appreciated.
