The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    @Helen I have a few different tests but I'm pretty sure I don't have my thyroid tests :( even if I did I'm sure there's not much I could do. The gp probs wouldn't prescribe the meds if my levels weren't the best.
    I will check my morning levels starting tomorrow. Do you have any ideas on how i go about it? I have a basic home thermometer.[/quote]

    You can find all information on the site www.stopthethyroidmadness.com . I´m sorry I don´t have the vocabulary to describe this easily, so I think you´d better check a correct instruction. To start with- put the thermometer beside your bed so that you can take the temperature before getting up.

    Thanks I will look into that. If it makes my dumbness go away also, then that's an added bonus.:(;)

    @vamah. She said within days the numbness was gone. I tried it for my cold feet and it didn't work for that.

    Did your friend use it for numbness caused by cold or by something else? I see that it is possibly helpful for diabetic neuropathy, which can cause numbness, but I wonder if that is a completely different process.

    Not sure. If you order from www.pureformulas.com and it doesn't work or you don't like it you can return it for free.

    I can't tolerate heat or cold. Heat is probably worse.

    I was getting so cold in the night that it was like a glacier sitting on the back of my neck. I just got a heat pack full of oats that heats in the microwave. It makes a huge difference on my neck and helps me get back to sleep. Also great for my cold, cold hands. :)
