One of my health problems is thyroid issues. Hypothyroidism is a battle all on its own. I’m constantly exhausted. On some days I can take several naps and I’m still exhausted. This fatigue is simply ridiculous. I’ve tried to treat my thyroid on my own with the help of a doctor but all three thyroid medication hates my body. Levothyroxine caused my body to release tons of oxalates which caused kidney stones. Armour caused me to get seizure like symptoms. Since I already have had a seizure I know what symptoms to watch out for. I quit taking thyroid medication because my body reacts oddly to it.
I’m now on iodine drops x10 a day and thyroid synergy. I’ve been on this new treatment for a month and I don’t feel anything changing. I’m almost to the point where I want to mainly focus on treating my MTHFR gene mutation. There’s extra steps that I have researched that I can do. When I first found out that I had hypothyroidism my Endocrinologist at the time said my numbers look fine but boy did I feel like crap and I still do. I’m tired of fighting this thyroid because there’s no winning with it. No matter how I try to treat it its not getting better.
It seems like it’s all about the numbers and if the numbers are good then the doctors seem to stop caring. What happened to listening to your body? I listen to my body and no doctor will listen to me. I hate going to Endocrinologists because they want to treat it with medication and I’m anti medication due to the risks of seizures and other complications. Seriously, what do you do? I would like to get my body feeling well but it seems like no matter what I do, it doesn’t help. I’m just frustrated with this butterfly shaped thing in my body.
