That's it I'm so miserable and dejected right now I could cry ... its taken a few days to post this as I didn't feel able to do it when my results came through last week.
What I thought would work hasn't and now I'm feeling totally demoralised!
for the last four months I have been gluten free and taking supplements, but my bloods have just come back and my antibodies have almost doubled in six months when my last tests were taken!
I'm really at a loss now as to what to think, I'm so upset that the diet has made no difference at all.
so what to do now....do I abandon the diet, do I carry on??? (more questions below)
I will say the bloating has gone and I don't have the stomach cramps very often now, but that could be that I had a slight intolerance.
Hypo wise I'm up and down as always. Still getting pains in my neck, shoulder and ears, but my other aches and pains have gone. I still get out of breath when I walk uphill, but I don't feel tired all the time. My neck swells frequently but I'm not sure what I can do? I have started yoga and take holy basil to try and combat my anxiety attacks as well as trying to keep my shoulder pain and joint moving. I take a bucket load of supplements every day, but still feel no better really.
I'm on 150 mcg of levothyroxine per day( dose had been put up from 100 mcg just prior to the first tests below) and now wondering if in fact I should try some T3 as my test results indicate that my FT3 really hasn't altered?
sorry if its a complicated post but If anyone has any ideas even if its shut up and put up ...I need guidance/help please.
