Please be sure to follow up on all of this! Razzle listed a great website for learning about
thyroid & adrenal issues, testing and I even found a good doctor through that site.
Although I healed from these infections - I went through a bunch of stress and ended up with Addison's, hypothyroid, and with intestinal food allergies. The back side
of my thyroid was swollen, making it difficult to swallow pills, although food and liquids seemed to go down fine. Having only the back side of the thyroid swell is a rare thing according to my doctor, and we didn't know that's what it was until I was put up to 1/2 of a grain of Amour Thyroid twice a day. That's when the swelling went down and I could swallow pills easily again - almost like magic! LOL!
Because my TSH and T3 were all within the 'normal ranges' -although they were at the low end, I had ENT's telling me that I had things like esophageal pockets and other odd things that needed surgery! I refused their services though, fortunately! Otherwise I would have only lined their pockets with money and would have still had that darned lump in my throat and not be able to swallow pills!
With the treatment for adrenal issues (adrenal support and supplementing with DHEA) and doing an extensive elimination diet - I'm feeling much, much better!!
Moral of the story? Be sure all of your possible thyroid and adrenal issues are checked out thoroughly!
