Hi Wendy ... sorry to hear you have
I was diagnosed with It after a serious Riss river virus, 27 years ago...& the birth of our 1st Son... seems those 2 experiences , drained my andrenals !
I follow doctor & Naturopathic assistance...take 75 mcg Thyroxine every morning before breakfast...
However, I have never experienced ear itching? could it be a fungal infection as that can itch like crazy as it manifests itself into weird places.☺️ may need a script for a strong cream .??,use an ear bud to line the ear .. but, sprays itch when drying up.☺️ Same as moist ears get itchy while drying ... as our ears sweat too.
Also, did you say you take Armour... pig extract as I was keen to try it too ?
I have managed body aches & pains , light gym dance aerobics , over the last 27 years to feeling it's all back again, even though levels are all good etc.
Not feeling like going to the gym anymore but exercise keep very active in other ways as I feel better moving around .
I suspect thyroxine must have side effects , such as long life joint pain 😔
I follow a gluten free diet, organic chicken, grassfed beef , all salads, green olives , olive oil, ... almond & coconut milk.. & youghurt , quinoa,brown rice,
Lots more healthy foods are all alternated in different recipes weekly .
no alcohol , sweets etc...
Eat all organic veggies , limited kinds of Natural fruits ,... blueberries ...apples ,
My Naturopath helps keep me healthy. .. supplements of mediherb Radiola, Liverton, ginger liquid, turmeric, grape seed extract , Vitamit D & a thyroid B complex & 6 selenium drops per day , Slippery Elm, I must say it does take a bit of self control & commitment , is disappointing when I still feel so much body pain ..especially Joints ...
I have heard some really sad stories of people that are so big from this disease ... does scare me...
My weight stays in -between a size 14 16.... is fustrating, when fuming dies hit 14😀 Body pain limits me to gardening though , Shopping centres , beach when on holidays, local beughbourhood...are always great to walk... never rid of the joint pain though.
Any feedback is welcome, from anyone out there, fir new & supportive ideas to manage Hashimotoes😔 While on Thyroxine .?☺️
All the best with your itchy ears☺️
