There has been a debate on my drs notes with me paying dr skinner and a private endo to say I needed thyroid hormones and NHS gps and endo denying the need. I ddin treally have a lot of my symptoms relieved by thyroid hormones but did get much better from chronic fatigue after a homepathic prescription and I also started to lose weight. So because of expense and lack of faith in the idea that I needed the nature thyroid I was taking I stopped it. I few months later I discovered I had put on a lot of weight but never really got back into taking the stuff and then I started to feel really ill, sort of whoosy, like my head was swimming. I fell 5 times in a week and broke my ankle. The ankle treatment was fine but the tablets I was given for so called vertigo didnt make a jot of difference. I came home from hospital feeling more and more confused and swimmy. I phoned emergency doctor and was told to wait a couple of months to see neuro. I felt like I was slipping away and I think if it hadnt occured to me to take a grain of ndt I would have. 30 mins later I was so much better but if I miss a dose it starts again. arguement over I think. I need ndt because I can maintain a standing position with out it. My Tsh i have been told was normal it is usually about 2. My only problem now is my child is looking hypo with blood results similar to mine. Any ideas? I have also started B12 jabs after discussion with Dr Chandy and my memory i so much better and the clarity in my mind with just one dose has made me realise how impaired I had gradually become. I am so grateful to you all and this forum. Not only have you saved my life but I think it is going to be worth living.
