I want to ask what you would do;
The doc perscribed me a trial dose of levothyroxine (25mg for 28 days) on the understanding that she didn't think it was thyroid related (she was suggesting PMR) and that if I were to
feel better on it it would only be due to the kick it gives you, also that it would take over any t4 that I was producing Now I am doubting myself and swinging wildly back and forth
thinking may be it is PMR, candida, menopause, adrenals, a virus, or just lack of vitamins or minerals, or perhaps its all in my head after all.
AM I diagnosed or not ?
HAVE I got a thyroid issue ?
SHOULD I take the medication ?
