This is a post I shared on Facebook a bit ago, and I wanted to share here, also. Mainly because I continue to be amazed that maybe the Fibromyalgia nightmare is coming to an end.
To my lovely friends who live with
fibromyalgia, I have to share with you. 10 months ago, I went off my
synthetic thyroid medicine and started taking a natural form from a
compounding pharmacist in Rochester. I did this after reading reports of
MANY women who developed fibro after being on synthetic thyroid meds
for 5 years. As of about three months ago, 90% of my fibro symptoms are
GONE. I feel like I've been set free from a prison. Passing it along in
case it might help any of you.
I also have been seeing an Acupuncturist and a Chiropractor who has more degrees in alternative medicine than I can count. He is the one who first suggested (very firmly) that I get off the synthetic thyroid.
Really, I feel amazing. Minor set backs here and there, but I went 48 hours without Neurontin the other day, and didn't realize it! I had to get back on it to chase off the pain in my legs, but I usually can't function once I hit that 24 hour mark, so this was astonishing.
I hope this will be a help to someone out there. Please don't hesitate to ask questions if there's something more you'd like to know.
