Is anyone experiencing severe body pain? I get really painful back, hips, and legs. My legs feel heavy too, and my feet are very painful. I just turned 40. I'm still breastfeeding my 28 month old daughter so for this reason and the bad things I read about painkillers, I try to stay off them, but sometimes I have to take some paracetamol...
I'm on a mix of NDT and T3 - just switched to NDT and T3 from T3 only in March (gradually). I'm taking 25 mcg of T3 at 3am, 1grain of Thiroyd at 11am, and 1grain of Thiroyd at 5pm.
I'm taking kelp for iodine, Se, Mg, B complex, D3, K2, and started taking iron replacement too (Floradix), this seems to help with dizziness. I'm also taking CoQ10 and Nutri a Thyroid. I've been gluten-free for nearly 20 years, and lactose-free too (very rarely I eat dairy and take lactase enzyme but I don't feel well on it, so most of the time I avoid it). I eat Paleo 95% of the time (I'm only human and fall off the wagon sometimes, but never eat gluten!), cook everything from scratch.
My stress levels are medium (low really but I'm a sensitive person), sleep is not the best (stay up too late to fluff around but I'd need at least 8-9 hrs, instead I get usually around 7...)
I don't have Hashimotos, just plain hypothyroid. Temperatures are optimal, my two main symptoms are body / muscle ache and brain fog.
Can anyone offer any insight on what to do to get rid of it? I need to be fit for my baby! Exercising does help a lot, just sometimes life takes over...
Is there something g else I could be doing to feel better? Some days the pain is 7-8/10!
