Hi , my annual blood test gave yet again a border line low thyroid reading which my GP yet again dismissed as not needing treatment. When I mentioned this was now the 9th low reading, to my knowledge, they sat up and took notice. They haven't linked my gluten intolerance, and did a coeliac test which was a waste of time as I'd put myself on a gluten free diet 4 years earlier. Needless to say it came back negative. Im on 75mg thyroxin which initially lifted depression but hasn't helped hair loss and weight gain. Im now on Paleo diet to try and revitalise my energy. Am so tired. Now I've had a very painful flare up of my shoulder and a heavy chest feeling ( like panic attack), heat pads and ibuprofen were helpful and I wonder if this is a symptom of something else. I've just read you need to take thyroxin hours apart from multi cuts etc and get very little understanding from GO , I was sent to a dietician at the county hospital and they were no help at all, as I had self diagnosed she said to just carry on with GF diet. no advice at all . feel so alone in this so am glad to find this amazing group. Any suggestions as to my way forward? I read about Autoimmune Protocol. What is that please?
Am retired and gave little income so private doctors aren't really am option.
