Only 36 and going crazy!
Hello Wray, I felt compelled to share my story with you. I am awaiting the arrival of Natpro and I cannot wait!
My story goes like this: I am a single mom, working full time, raised my 17 year old daughter all alone. I have had stress ALL my life. By age 26 my Thyroid was a mess. "Borderline" was what they called and and didn't treat me. I suffered for YEARS!!! Then finally they put me on Synthroid, that didn't help. Then onto Levothyroxin, that didn't work either. When I couldn't take it anymore (literally) I did extensive research and found a wonderful Dr here in Toronto, Canada where I live. He put my on natural desiccated, Armor Thyroid which I fill at a compounding pharmacy. That has made me feel much better.....BUT still not like myself. I still have severe PMS, mood swings, water retention, foggy thinking, major anxiety, can't sleep, always crave sweets, carbohydrates etc. I feel depressed, and unmotivated most of the time. I have a 17 year old daughter and an extremely supportive boyfriend. I have never been overweight in my entire life. I am 5'9 and 115 lbs. I exercise 4-5 days a week, I eat mostly organic meat, veggies etc. AND after all this I had my hormones checked and I couldn't believe that my ESTROGEN levels were THROUGH THE ROOF!!!! My progesterone, testosterone, DHEA were basically so low they were alarming!!!
My Dr. gave me oral Progesterone (natural compounded) to help me sleep. (I take it before bed) I also got Testosterone and DHEA to apply transdermally. I have been doing this for about a month and still don't feel all that different.
I am TRULY, TRULY hoping that with Natpro my nightmare will end.
I will share my story with you again and hopefully by then I will feel like "me" again.
