      Brain fog can be caused by toxins. You can look into different ways to detoxify.

      When I cut out gluten. dairy, corn, flour of any kind, sugar, alcohol & all processed foods, along with lectins (tomatoes, peppers, egg plant) & remember to increase my water, walk in nature daily, have a consistent seep routine, meditate, yoga & decrease negative info like the news or social media, then I feel ALOT better, but I really struggle with the consistency. Hashimotos is not my only diagnosis, but I’m trying to heal it without meds. I do take Synthroid

      There are books out there that can encourage and empower you to take control over this, rather than fall victim to it. Hashimotos is a symptom of different stressors that cause your body to see your thyroid as something that needs to be attacked. For me cutting out sugar, white flour and eating organic has made a huge difference. I work out daily and journal. Your body has a tremendous ability to heal if we give it the proper tools. 🤗

        @Peachykeen64 I know. There is a difference when I eat what I call green foods.. mostly fruits, vegetables and unprocessed foods and drink water. Walk my dog... I love doing that. Maybe that is why my symptoms have been manageable so far. I hope the trend continues.

      My doctor just upped my Levothyroxine from 100mcg to 125mcg and put me on Spironolactone (both to be taken in the mornings) and now I can't stay awake during the day. He did this to help with weight gain because I'm not very mobile due to having lots of surgeries this year. I sleep almost all day! I tried switching the Spironolactone to night time and that helped a little...but still not able to wake up most days...so then I switched the Levothyroxine to night time as well and that helped a little more. I've only switched that one to nights last week, so I'm hoping it will continue to improve. If not, I'll have to go to the doctor to get something changed. Sleeping from 11pm to 5pm the next day isn't a life I want to live. Don't get me wrong..I appreciate being able to sleep more..but I never feel rested when I'm awake..so it's almost pointless. I need to change this asap so I can live my life again.

        @Ryderhayze Why do you feel guilty?

        • Ryderhayze

          619d

          @Zellie I have a million things to do. Lol I don't have many bad days though. It really depends on where I am in my cycle and hormone changes.

        @Ryderhayze I feel ya. We gotta give ourselves grace though. Heal emotionally and physically. Cut out sugar and gluten.

        • Ryderhayze

          @Peachykeen64 yup.. I do. That helps. Still have some bad days though.

      I started on Lexapro for anxiety and it has helped me.

        @Ryderhayze I have xanex for my really bad days...

      I think it effects everyone differently. For some it's mild. For others...like me I feel like a shell of who I used to be. I feel like such a bad wife, daughter, mother.... Between anxiety, fatigue, brain fog, and body aches sometimes getting outta bed is all I can do for the day and then the guilt sets in.

      Definitely made my life different especially when my TSH and all that wasn't the right balance. I would say Follow doctor Motley on Instagra it's very helpful.
