Finally have another appointment at an Endocrinologist for a second opinion. This doctor was recommended by a co-worker, but I have to wait till March. My husband is getting concerned with my condition. This past weekend I had food poisoning and was sick for a good 24 hours. I’m so frustrated with this whole situation. I have read other’s posts, I would like to know what diet has been working for you. I have been trying to stick to eating chicken, turkey and fish. Staying away from anything with gluten, soy and oils ( other than coconut or olive oil). Mostly organic fruits and vegetables. If anyone has any other thoughts or advice, I would really appreciate it..

      @TerriB Got my second opinion from another Endocrinologist. He said it wasn’t as bad as the other doctor made it out to be. I’m so thankful for that!! More blood work, and now I have been taking medication- methimazole. Sticking to my diet as much as possible. Leg cramps and joint stiffness and pain still there. Some days are better than others. Pushing thru the day sometimes seems impossible. Trying to sleep with the joint pain is a challenge, not much helps. Taking one day at a time! Feeling positive!!!!

      Hey! Try to stay away from dairy and sugar. Although dairy doesn’t affect your thyroid very much it can cause a lot of headaches. Also avoid iodized salts.

        @GravesWarrior thank you for that information. Sometimes I feel like I’m all alone in this. So far, sticking to the diet has made me feel better, physically. I just want to sleep better. It makes it so hard to go to work when you didn’t sleep well and your feeling so drained. Has anyone tried Ashwagandha? I have read good things about it.
