I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis (diagnosed) I have been gluten-free and dairy-free as well as free of nightshade plants and peanuts as well as many other food stuffs that cause me serious reactions and/or allergic reactions, since 2003. This includes tomatoes and citrus. This is of necessity rather than by choice. About 1 year ago in 2015 I began feeling extremely fatigued and symptoms have increased since then. I have not had a diagnosis nor yet been able to afford tests that I would like to have. My GP would only test tsh and I managed to have that tested 3 times, only to be told It's fine! I am not fine! I am self-treating hit and miss for now. I have had weight gain. I am taking Natural Sources Raw Thyroid capsules, Solgar gentle iron, and Vitamin B12 tablets as well as using Magnesium oil spray. I do get Infliximab treatment via I.V. at hospital every 8 weeks for Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ibuprofen for pain and it all seemed to begin with stress and stress seems to continue to exacerbate things. Inflammation is prevalent and lately I am unable to walk unaided. I am determined to get tests when able to afford and then be able to treat myself properly.
