susiebow I haven't read all of your posts, just had a quick squint through one or two. I see you have Hashimoto's and as the nature of Hashi's is fluctuation of antibodies and therefore symptoms, are you addressing the Hashi's by being gluten free and supplementing with selenium to do all you can to reduce the attacks? Keeping TSH low is also supposed to help reduce the attacks.

Are all vitamins and minerals at their optimal levels, have they been tested?

Other than that, the only other thing I can think of is what was preventing me from improving after trying every combination of meds possible, and that was testing adrenals, finding a problem and addressing it; testing sex hormones, finding a problem and addressing it; and getting deficiencies with vits and mins sorted.

There may be other things going on with you that need looking at but those would be a start.
