I suddenly developed a condition called hypothyroidism, it means the thyroid gland in my neck isn't producing any thyroid hormone so I have next to no metabolism.
There are many symptoms, click here - http://www.armourthyroid.com/hypothyroi ... ml#summary
At present I haven't had the depression that two of my american friends are suffering from time to time.
but the one condition that seemed to have suddenly cropped up from the list is joint and muscle pain. Even the muscles at the bottom of my feet are aching. My neck and shoulder have been very painful for the past 7 weeks (some days more than others) sulphur in certain fruits seem to irritate the condition)
When I hurt this much I find I'm unable to exercise much.
I found out that I'm allergic to the synthetic iron
tablets the doctor gave me to stop me fainting from lack of blood due to the hypothyroidism. So I take organic iron tablets from the health food store. The doctor has me on thyroxine (also sold as oroxine) but I think my body isn't responding well to this synthetic medication.
In the USA amongst many thyroid medications they sell one named Armour Thyroid which is a natural medication
. I've asked my doctor to get some in for me but he said our government has only approved the synthetic thyroxine (the one that doesn't work on me)
I guess I have to wait for our Minister of Health to suffer with the condition before they will recognise the need for it here.
