[YEA] For 11 years, following major surgery for endometrial tumors, I had been plagued with so many symptoms, multiplying and worsening year after year. I eat only whole vegetarian foods, meditate, exercise, pray, love, and have tried every (believe me, Every!) natural remedy! Doctors want to prescribe antidepressants if you have too many complaints, or drug after drug to address each symptom.
I had night sweats (soaked through 4-6 changes of p.j.s every night) insomnia, painfully cold hands and feet, severe heart palpitations ( heart would Stop for a moment, then race to catch up, would sometimes make me collapse) nightmares, insomnia, muscle pain, chronic fatigue, painful menstruation, anxiety, phlegm,phlegm, phlegm, chronic cough, nasal drip, pelvic pain, constipation, diarhea, nausea, skin rashes, dizziness, fogginess, an indescribable feeling of unwellness, low blood pressure, hypoglycemia... the list goes on and on....it was unbearable and no wonder it sounded like hypochondria. I urge anyone who has many symptoms that they can't seem to resolve to check out www.wilsonssyndrome.com. I stumbled upon it and it has saved my life. The remedy is liothyronine...a natural substance normally produced by your body. It is not easy to find a physician who will work with you on this, but try. I only take one capsule per day, as opposed to cycling on and off the medication like the website says. It made life worth living for me again.
EC: Liothyronine (Brand names: Cytomel, Triostat) is a medication prescribed to treat thyroid issues.
"Liothyronine sodium is a synthetic (man-made) version of one of the two hormones made by the thyroid gland, triiodothyronine. It is used for treating individuals who are hypothyroid (do not produce enough thyroid hormones)." Source
