Has anyone unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with CFS discovered improvement in symptoms by treating low thyroid? I'm aware that clinical presentation of hypo symptoms can persist despite lab numbers for TSH, free T3 and free T4 being in the "normal range."
Yes I believe it is hypothyroidism caused by Hashimotos.I am now being treated for Hashimotos with amazing results and have had cfs for years.the hashitomotos does not often test positive in blood tests.It's ashame but true.I would bet my life that CFS is undiagnosed Hashimotos.
Yes you have to find a doctor who will treat the hashimotos even though the blood tests come up normal.I had profound cfs for over 15years and once I started treating the hashimotos my life changed.Read the symptoms of Hashimotos and understand it often does not test out it the antibodies test.Here is what I am doing even though I do not test positive for it:
for immune support
low dose naltrexone.............. you need a doc to prescribe it
transfer factor plus.patented immune support you can buy on line
I also take T3 AND T4(levothyroxine)
Read up on Hashimotos symptoms, you will not have all but you will have some.I have when active"
let me know once you have read up on the symptoms.I can recommend a few doctors for you.
Oh and most profound sypmtom is the front of my neck where the thyroid is is SORE to the touch,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,that's HASHIMOTOS!
