Hi Everybody, its been a while since i was last on here but am still struggling, and especially so since seing my last Endroconologist. Can anybody help me with this question as i need advice urgently. 10 years ago i had Radioactive/Iodine to kill off my thyroid due to having a Multi Nodule Goitre and Hperthyroidism. For 5 years i was doing really well and feeling good with no need for any thyoid replacement, ( or so they said ) so i was pleased about this . Its 5 years on from that now and as some of you may remember i have being struggling ever since, i was first Diognosed with Hpothyroid and needed to start medication. My biggest problem has been finding some treatment that agrees with me, and always felt that NDT would be the best for me but this has not always turned out to be so because it hasn't always been well tolerated, depending on the type i ingested. To cut the long story short I was also recently Diognosed with CFS, and also Fibromyalgia, and also told i needed to see another Endocronologist as they were not happy with the fact my levels were not good, but would not accept that this was because i had been off all meds for a couple of weeks, and as i was not feeling good and was not sure what was causing it, but realise now that it was more than likely the Fibromyalgia, so anyway went to see the Endo whom explained that NDT was useless and as i had no thyroid the only thing that would help would be Levothyroxine ? I totally disagree and had already tried this drug but was having to many side effects to which he added they were all in my head and that neither had to be taken on an empty stomach as he gives his wife, ( whom is also HYPOthyroid ) hers every morning with a cup of tea ?? . My Concern is, could he be right ? I need to be sure that taking NDT is okay and cannot medically see why the other form of medication would be of any more use to me than the one I prefer. Has anybody here had Radioactive Thyroid treatment for same prob and taking NDT. Help would be so gratefully recieved as i need to relate to somebody else whom has had the ame treatment that is taking NDT and is doing fine. Thank you so much and so sorry that this is a long email .
