Boy, it’s been a whole year since I began my journey back to wellness from the ravages of Hashimoto’s Disease on my brain and body. It’s not been hard to follow the diet and take the supplements, that’s been nice. But, the all symptoms take time to diminish.
On a 0 -10 scale (10 being the worst: the most pain, the most symptoms, etc.) I’ve gone from a 10 to a 2 or 3 in most all of the over 60 symptoms of this nasty condition.
Some symptoms, like not sleeping through the night, crying all the time and being depressed are at a lovely ZERO! Yea!
STILL DEALING WITH SOME SYMPTOMS, AND SOME NEW ONES CROPPED UP!
I do still deal off and on with brain fog glitches and daily body pain. My hair has been thinning the past 2 months, but I think that’s related to changing my L-thyroxin thyroid medication dose from 112 mcgs that I’ve been on for years to 75 mcgs. I think it shocked my system. I know it’s linked directly to this change due to my daily documentation in my GYLB Thyroid Forms. So, as usual I’m researching and finding out what I can do about that. I’ll let you know what I find!
MAYBE STUCK WITH SOME CONDITIONS
Symptoms that may not ever get better (though I’m an optimist and hold out for the best!) are ridged fingernails and toenails, gray hair, no eyebrows, swelled tongue, extra fat and skin under at throat and under upper arms, and skin getting “crepe-paper skin.” EW! I often envision bathing in a bathtub topped up with Omega-3 oils to cure all this!! This skin thing just came on quickly in the past year. Och! It’s always something!!! 🙂
So, I’m very, very grateful that there are healthcare professionals who are specializing in thyroid health to help us get our lives back. I’m glad I have my pick of them locally. Make sure to check my PRACTITIONERS list for one close to you. Following the clean diet is a huge help, but you still may need a big dose of supplements to rebuild your ailing endocrine, immune and thyroid body. They’ll be able to test you for your specific needs to get you up and humming again!
To your thyroid health!
