Hi whitely, I'm so sorry to hear you are feeling so ill. My thyroid problems have gone on for ten years now, and like you, things were getting worse not better. When they tested your VitD and calcium levels, did they also check your B12, ferritin, and folate? I was eventually diagnosed with B12 deficiency about 16 months ago, and I am now getting B12 injections. This has helped a lot with the aches and pains, numbness and sweats, which were making me feel so ill. I see you've had some gut issues, and this increases the likelihood of all vitamins and minerals being low. It means the inflamed gut has problems absorbing what we need from our food. It might be worth asking your doctor to check for low B12 ?

I wish you well, and hope you find some answers soon. MariLiz
