I increased to 2 3/4 grains of NatureThroid 4 days ago. My progress remains up and down to say the least. I am working my way up to 3 grains and then will test in 6 weeks. My last test results on 2 1/2 grains showed that I was still very much hypo. My worse symptoms are crying for no apparent reason, getting anxious off and on (though it has been getting a little better), muscle and joint pain.
Will someone please remind me that this will get better? There are days that I just don't think I can do it one more day, but then what choice do I have. I just want my happy, fun-loving, energetic, focused self back. She has been missing for most of the last 4 years even though I was diagnosed over a decade ago and did what I think was okay, but looking back I realized I was very much either on the wrong hormone replacement or not on enough.
Any encouragement would be welcomed! I can handle the dry skin and hair falling out, but the mental stuff is horrible for me! If you can share success stories, that would be wonderful.
This is an amazing community of people helping each other. I have been on another site and the people are there are not nearly as friendly and only have one protocol and if you don't ascribe to it, then......
