No type III is hypermobile (which I am not very...)
I was taking naturethroid. But as I said I could not tolerate it, even with a slow titration.
People with hypothyroidism very often have a characteristic tone to the voice - rather cracked or hoarse. The face changes, and changes again with treatment. They are often very passive, not fatigued, but just passive and sleepy. PWME say that ME is not sleepiness and that seems to be confirmed by sleep studies, but hypothyroid people really are sleepy. They can also develop joint contractures, as Parkinson's disease patients do, with their immobility. I am not aware that ME leads to this.
In fact I do not really think that most of the features of hypothyroidism look much like ME at all.
i just want to add that if you have HPA axys dysfunction, it is likely that you will have a problem accepting T3 into cells. First you need to solve HPA dysfunction.
That being said, over at the finasteride forum , we have something that resembles chronic fatigue, at least symptom wise. Some people are now doing HRT and doing better, actually they turned their life around. full adrenal cortisol repleacement, and full thyroid replacement with NDT.
Today I saw a study saying in patients presenting chronic fatigue from cirrosis or hepatitis C, Allopregnanolone was undetectable. In the finasteride studies that have been made to identify the problem with the persistent permanent side effects, allopregnanolone was undetectable.
This molecule has affinity for gaba, is released in stressfull situations and it seems that it is needed to protect dopaminergic neurons from degeneration, so much that it has been researched for parkinson's and it has been discovered the neurons regenerate on allopregnanolone.
I'm not saying its the same or whatever, I dont think it is, but I just wanted to leave here something for you to think about.
