FFOT: my thyroid

Apparently, either my meds have been too near their expiration date, have been watered down, or I've quit responding to them.  It's been two months since I had the energy to do anything...like clean the living room, sort and put away laundry, or more than the bare minimum with the dishes. 

And that can fuck the fucking fuck off, because I have a shit ton of work to do.

  1. Thyroid medications are a crapshoot at best. They work; or not.

    1. It USED to work. Odysseus found me a thyroid support suppliment that's doing what I need it to do...and I find that my endurance has gone to shit. I cleaned half the living room, and ran out of oomph. I'm physically tired, and muscles ache.

  2. Heroditus,

    If a thyroid support supplement containing iodine, and a Vitamin B complex are not working to keep your energy levels up then it is time to talk to a doctor.

    I would actually start with an allergy panel to see if your body isn't trying to fight off something environmental.

    Just a suggestion, and I hope you feel better.

    1. The doctor has me on levothyroxine. It wasn't working well anymore, so I'm taking the supplement in addition. That is working. This is the second day in a row that I've had the energy to work on the housework.
