How To Speed Up A Sluggish Thyroid
Interesting question: Hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome all share similar symptoms, such as fatigue, depression and muscle pain. I would say many patients with uncontrolled hypothyroidism could have the same symptoms as patients with fibromyalgia and cfs. They could coexist. But most patients with fibromyalgia and cfs don't have hypothyroidism. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
I suffer from hypo thyroid can I lose weight like normal people? Or will i never be able to lose weight? If i can will it be at same speed as others?
Yes if treated: If hypothyroidism is adequately treated you'll have as much thyroid hormone as a normal person ; thus be able to lose weight as easily as a normal person (which is not that easy).Unfortunately few doctors treat it adequately;thryronorm only provides T4 ; most thyroid patients benefit from adding t3 (liothyronine) or taking natural thyroid.See http://abt.Cm/18gpb3a ; http://bit.Ly/1ccxy0r ; http://bit.Ly/15k26u8. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can I speed up my metabolism when i don't have a thyroid? Do I have a metabolism? I'm taking Armour Thyroid and levoxyl (thyroxine). I'm eating right and walking everday but i can't seem to lose weight.
Could be either/both: There is a lot of overlap between the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction and depression/anxiety. Many psychiatrists and primary care doctors will check thyroid blood tests before considering treating the mood issue. If thyroid is dysfunctional then treating the thyroid condition might improve or alleviate the depression/anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Was hit in driver's side rear in mva yesterday, slow speed. Woke up this a.M. With burning pain in front of neck only (4-5/10). Just a strain?

Wow. : Wow. I'm sorry to hear of your injury, and understand how what appears to be conflicting opinions make you a little nuts, especially when you're in pain (and numbness). It's not "right" versus "wrong" here, though. Your gp seems to be looking to treat you conservatively with steroids, probably in an effort to shrink any swelling in the discs which are pressing up on nerves, which is causing the pain and numbness. Surgery on cervical discs isn't something you rush into, at least not without exhausting all conservative measures first. I would certainly let your gp know of any side effects the Prednisone is causing. You may also want to try a course of acupuncture, which works particularly well for this sort of thing. If you continue to show no improvement, by all means, get the mri. You may also want to consider a steroid injection into the disc (sounds worse than it is). Whiplash can be an exasperating problem, and it may take a number of treatment modalities to get you relief. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
