Well I have been on 30mg (1/2 grain) of Thyroid-S for 8 days now and OMG what a difference. I didn't expect a result so soon and I have to admit to being skeptical (and a little bit frightened) based on so many Dr's telling me there's nothing wrong.
Coincidence? I don't think so, I've been sleeping well now for the last 2 days and for a normal amount of time (about 7 hours a night) and am actually awake and refreshed for the rest of the time.
The last few days have seen my energy coming back and my enthusiasm to clean the house and do daily things that I previously couldn't be bothered to do has returned. My palpitations have disappeared the in the last 2 days and my resting pulse has gone from 45 bpm to 60 bpm.
I still have aches in my legs but I'm confident that will improve. I went out yesterday and my husband says I'm walking faster (I didn't realise I was slow).
My headaches have gone and my blurred vision is improving.
I know I'm not 100% yet but I do feel very encouraged and more myself than I have in a very long time.
Next week I can increase to 1 grain (60mg) and we'll see how I feel.
I'm an illustrator (in my spare time) and had lost my will to paint as I was too tired all the time after I got home from work and I felt like I couldn't be bothered (painting is my world), I'm now thinking about my next project and looking at current pieces in progress which have been left untouched for over 8 months!
Thank you a thousand times for the information on NDT and self treatment and for the unwavering support. You guys have given me my life back.
Fingers crossed I keep improving.
