Where do I even begin??? I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's and adrenal fatigue several years ago. I was placed on hydrocortisone for the adrenal fatigue and other supplements. It was a miracle! I dropped weight, felt so much better and slept better. Last year I lost my job and my insurance. I have not been able to go back to doctor or get labs or get meds. I haven't been on the meds in over a year. I held my weight for a while but in the past 10 months it has gotten strange. Overnight I grew "chicken wings" on my arms. I have never had that much flab on my upper arms, even when I was 240 lbs pregnant with my kids. I weigh 155 lbs currently (gained about 20 lbs seems like overnight 10 months ago). It was about the same time that my menstrual cycle changed as well. Instead of 28 day cycle, I have 21 day cycles. My moods are erratic, stretch marks are purplish, cystic acne (never had acne even when I was a teenager), bruising, alot of fluid retention especially during my daily walks, swollen cystic breasts, etc.
I am 39 years old with a copper IUD. Do I need the cream? If I do, then how much do I need and when do I apply it since I'm on a 21 day cycle? And where do I purchase it?
