Turning to Homeopathic and Updates

Howdy-ho Everyone!

     Well I've been lowered further to .075MG and the doctor loves my results. I have a horrible memory for numbers, but he has mailed me the new results.

     Personally, some joint pain has returned and good old fatigue is creeping back. Which goes to show numbers are just a basic measurement and everybody is a unique little snowflake. The reason we lowered my medications was due to heart palpitations I was experiencing. For a week all was well and dandy, than on a trip to the east coast they started up again. While in our hotel room I found out Citalopram, the anxiety medication I was on, can cause heart palpitations!

     Well damn! Guess how quickly I decided to ween myself off that fun pill of trouble? So now I'm about two weeks from being off it completely. Next on my hit-list is my Nexium for GERD/Acid Reflux.

     I'm tired of putting all these synthetic chemicals in my body with their own adverse side effects. For the time being, I have no desire to get off my thyroid medication. But everything else - probably gonna go! My next post will be on some homeopathic examples and better lifestyle choices.

     As for updates, my side bar is out of date with all the thyroid blogs and websites out there. If you personally read this blog, and would like a link to your own thyroid related page, please send me a link either in a private message or a comment below and I will get on that :) I prefer if your blog is somewhat upbeat. Life is already full of ups and downs and I would prefer linking resources that can instill a sense of hope and/or encouragement.

  1. Hello Maddy.
    I am an OLD person who had hypothyroid symptoms for years.In the end I fixed myself. I know no two people are alike, and am not making any claims, but have a look at my ramblings and let me know what you think. I have a small website and a (occasionally) pithy blog.

    I am cynical about the allopaths, but understand they have a place.

    I am happy to backlink, as I know many hypothyroid folk come to my site.
