I really don't know if anybody reads these but hey, if you do, then awesome.
I recently found out that my life-long symptoms are a result of a swollen thyroid caused by my diet which lacks iodide. It upsets me, as I am allergic to iodide. (Eat your shellfish, boys and girls!) As of right now, my symptoms are:
-Irregular menstruation (haven't had one in two years)
-No significant weight loss/gain
-Constant, steady weight gain
-Swelling in the legs and ankles
-Excessively warmer than everyone else
-Problems with brussel sprouts and broccoli
-Problems with baking soda
Who knew a thyroid could do so much?
I will be seeing about getting it either partially or fully removed. If this happens, I will be on medication for the rest of my life. Hoo hah.
