Many of you replied to my post maligning turmeric so I thought I had better put the record straight!
Briefly as poss: was suffering from what I thought was Pleurisy and went to docs yesterday, got referred straight away to hospital and was kept in overnight as my chest was clear and after numerous ECGs, drugs, bloods, and an x ray they were flummoxed. I had mentioned my thyroid a few times but as usual was told everything was fine and it was functioning perfectly (!) So, after I was discharged today I googled "breathlessness and Hashimotos" and lo and behold found out that it is a known problem and is I think what has been causing my problems for the last few months.
So, my apologies to Turmeric! However what I have learned re oxalates means I will definitely be avoiding it for a while
