A lot better. Thanks for asking Orion! I'm starting to feel like a new person. My skin is even improving! Looks like I will be able to wear shorts again! It's only been 3 days! My body needed this.
My endo added progestone (ProGest). I both it yesterday from a heatlh food store. I put it on my wrists daily. My ZRT test result said that my progestone was low, so he agreed that I should take it.
You might want to add a chiropactor. I'm considering it. I think that I've just figured something out. I've been searching for docs that treat depression/anxiety holistically, and chiropactor kept coming up. They even treat fibromayalgia...and I believe that they use Armour Thyroid(natural hormone), etc. I will find out! I also have a book by a pain specialists and he too uses Armour Thyroid.
But you have to find a good one that knows about
what we are going through. I've learned that chiropactors are holistic docs...but unlike holistic docs they accept insurance.
I want to see a chiropactor too, because with an endo alone I still feel like I'm the doc...and I don't like feeling this way. I'm tired of doing all this research. It's time for me to rest and take care of myself and stop stressing over how to treat myself. I've read so many books and articles...and when I brought 2 of my books with me to show my endo he said those are not endos. I'm like...so! They know what I'm going through and they treat it!
Orion, your accident may have contributied to all this.
I have adrenal fatique(or one of the many names that is called), ProGest(for low progesterone) and hypothyroidism(tissue resistance to thyroid hormones).
Meds: Armour Thyroid, Hydrocortisone, and lots of supplements in addition to my multi-vitamins.
