Sorry to be the one to say it out loud but this medication is BS and is making people sick not better. Sure some symptoms disappear but its not a cure. shouldn't we be asking why are we all having thyroid problems and not just giving it a band aid. And yes that is exactly what it is a band aid. Please dont respond to this message if your from a pharmaceutical company or some quack dortor because i am tired of being lied to and guess what we aren't stupid. I'm just surprised someone hasn't started a lawsuit.
So let me start from the beginning. I started having thyroid issues after i had my children. it took almost a year before i was diagnosed when i i did my own research and asked my doctor to check my levels. my T4 was 52.
I was started on a low dose of Synthroid and wasn't feeling great for over a month and taking it as directed. I experienced sevear mood swings anger and body pain. I would get out of bed and my feet hurt i felt like i had sand bags on my hips dragging me down. I was on Synthroid and Levothyroxine for years
i never felt great. I developed major back problems health problems. I played sports all my life was always healthy not thin but i ate well for the most part. loved vegetables and occasionally fried chicken. i never ate meat daily. I had been to several doctors read many books. I ended up seeing a pain management doctor who believed more in holistically to a point. He put me on Armour. now im not saying to get yourselves on this medication but at the time it made more sence. Its Natural its made from pigs thyroid grounded up into a pill. im sure theres more to it im not mentioning but I started to feel better. not perfect but better. Alot of the pains went away but i also had to watch what i was eating some foods affected the way I was feeling. And yet this is still another band aid. i did try taking thyroid Supplements i got from whole foods and a liquid mineral that i put in my water. i felt the best when i did that but lacked the energy. I also changed my salt to sea salt and just used that.
Obviously there is something that is causing all of us to have Thyroid issues. There has to be something we are missing in our diets or somethings is causing us to stay sick.
Someone has the cure out there I know it. I am so sick of being lied to and so should you. The pharmaceutical companys are a expensive lie and the FDA is a Joke. Lets us take control back and fix this problem. Please help me to help other people with your thoughts and or questions. Please just keep the conversation to the Thyroid issues. thank you for listening.
