Hi Kettlepot,

You want your doctor to check out your vitamin D and B12 as well as ferritin and folate. You want the results all to be high within their ranges to help your thyroid.

When I started carbimazole my pharmacist came out for a chat and told me to take high strength vitamin C along with it so I always took high strength slow release vitamin C with zinc and I felt fairly well while I was being treated.

I had bad reflux for a while and was given omeprazole - a PPI - see the post about PPIs this morning! I managed to stop that by going totally gluten free to try to reduce my thyroid antibodies (it worked!!!) I also cut out all junk food, sweets, chocolate, cakes and biscuits.

I still get leg cramps though, haven’t found a cure for them even though I’ve tried all the usual cures.

Good luck with your GP visit.

Me again fruitandnutcase i live in Jamaica where the sun is very hot so i know i have a lot of vit D not sure about b12 ferritin folate i ask my Gp to do that test next visit thank again


What a great place to live. All that sunshine, at least when you feel awful the weather doesn’t add to it.

As long as you get the sun on your skin for some time every day then your vit D is probably ok.

Try what this guy says and see if any of it could help with your burping draxe.com/low-stomach-acid/

Once your thyroid is sorted out for you hopefully the aches and pains will get better. I used to feel like someone had driven a bus over me then reversed back and done it again. Most of the aches and pains settled once my thyroid was sorted out. Good luck with it all, it’s a struggle but hopefully you’ll get there eventually.


Thank youfor replying back i'll take alook at it thank again be bless hope it's ok with you
