At the risk of sounding very foolish - I'm going to run this by you anyway.
Briefly, my hypoT history is that I had a parathyroidectomy and hemithroidectomy a little over a year ago. I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome in 2005, which, so far as I have learned with research, probably means that I have been hypoT for a long time. I was prescribed Levo 50mg, but found that it wasn't satisfactory. Dr wouldn't prescribe more because I was "in range" at 3.6. Bought Thyroid S and many symptoms improved (at 3 grains), though I was still very tired. My bloods in Dec were close to optimal - but still very tired.
Got scared of what they would say about my being on NDT and dropped back to Levo, but took one grain of NDT in addition. Bloods in April were not bad, but not so good as Dec,
Back to NDT . 3.5 grains. Some hypo symptoms still persisting -heel pain acute, severe fatigue (although I am still working), low mood, wrist pain, but slightly better than it has been.
So! to the point of my post.
I have been feeling absolutely S**t this week. Low mood. Low temperature. Sore feet. Sore wrist. 4llb weight gain.
I don't have a television, only watch films at the cinema. Usually rom-coms or feelgood movies. However, while I was off work with back pain recently I borrowed and watched Game of Thrones. It was everything I would normally avoid watching - bloody and violent - but it was strangely addictive and I watched it to the end of the 5th season. There were several scenes that I couldn't watch ( stabbing, cut throat, guts hanging out, etc).
Even anticipating a reaction from you that I'm a softie and of course there is no sense in this - censorship is rubbish, etc.
Do you think that the adrenalin rush (if that's what it is), caused by the scenes that I found horrific, could explain my recent 'dip'. ( err - plummet, actually)
Might be worth thinking about for anyone with adrenal fatigue.
