Tanya of the UK was giving the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, and not one doctor would consider treating her thyroid. So she did her own research and is now soaring thanks to Natural Desiccated Thyroid.
I just wanted to write my story and say thank you. Without STTM, my life by now would not have been worth living.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 3 years ago after I went to my doctor with all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. They checked my TSH and T4 and declared that I was “normal”. I managed to get a referral to a private endocrinologist only to be given the same answer, other than having low iron (8) and vitamin D (15). After taking supplements to improve these, some of my symptoms improved but the many others didn’t.
So with the Fibromyalgia diagnosis, I was so miserable that I thought I was going to have to live the rest of my life in this way. So I did as much research as possible on the condition to help myself. I came across the Fibromyalgia page on Stop the Thyroid Madness and used the information to try once more with my GP, to no avail. I was told if they prescribed me thyroid tablets, it would kill me!!
Well, three years later, nearly all symptoms gone and my life back! I am far from dead after using the information on Stop the Thyroid Madness to self-medicate with Thyroid-S. I hate that I have to treat myself but have no alternative after the medical profession in the U.K. Thank you Janie
