Thyroid Disorders board


Well, I will lend my voice here: I have been struggling with this for five years. I am trying to find an answer. So far possible answers include meds...too much or too little. T4 and T3 also too much or too little. Also inner ear problems (sometimes comes with hypo), low blood pressure, low ferritin, problems with slightly fatigued adrenals (may not show up on blood tests), not enough B12, sugar issues, food allergies, lack of selenium (which helps T4 to T3 conversion) Vitamin D... I think there are more....and I can't vouch for all of them.

In my opinion, something is out of balance and I am sure it has something to do with the thyroid as well but I don't know what, and as you said nor do the doctors. I saw some "drug" help with a disease refered to as FMS as these people suffer with Brain Fog as well. This person said that Co-enzyme Q10 150mg seems to help some people. She also said Gingko Biloba, low dose Ritalin and NADH (I don't know what this is) and Neurontin (Gabapentin) which apparently quietens electrical activity in nerves and gives pain relief.

.....I don't know what all these are, but may be at least worth talking to your doctor about...I am going to try, too.

Edit: I found this with CFS...these people also have brain fog:

Calcium Channel Blockers: These open the blood vessels in the body and brain. They are for high blood pressure but those with CFS seem to need to take more salt and fluid to prevent a further fall in blood pressure, which may already be low. They can help relieve the brain fog, fainting sensation etc

Selective Serotonin Uptake Inhibitors: E.g. Prozac, Aropax

Serotonin gives us the “feel good factor” and these drugs increase the levels of this brain hormone. This site say that you only need small doses of these drugs which are usually used as antidepressants. Apparently they can give energy and a clear brain at these doses and make you feel more normal again. Also it says that if it is used regularly it may help the immunes system to settle down....

Let's reasearch this and try to find an answer!
