I wonder if their is a link with under active thyroid and cigs/me/fibro? Maybe it is thyroid undiagnosed instead?

The Fibro Manual by Dr. Ginerva. Liptan addresses the thyroid & how it interacts with fibro. Released in June of this year.

Been sharing about this book because it has helped me so much. Was it Mimikay or Sezzy who mentioned Devin Starlanyl 's books. He refers to the Fibro Manuel here.

I have hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, sjogrens, and now POTS, among many other issues. I've read so many books in the past few years, and although it's all good info I think these authors think it's all cookie-cutter and all patients are alike. I think doctors treat us that way too. Each of us are unique, and if any one step from any book is helpful then we should feel blessed. Thanks for sharing, as this will be another book for me to read! Hugs love & prayers you find many benefits from this and others too! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Thank you FlappysLady. I get it about cookie cutter treatment. This author has fibro & runs a fibro only practice in Oregan. She has seen so many patients that need differing TX. She guides but gives lots of options as each treatment plan involves trial & error as you shared. We are individuals with varying diagnosis 's with our fibro. I did not get that cookie cutter thing from reading this book. Tons of helpful, useful info from traditional western medicine as well as integrative medicine (eastern?). Embraces the gamut of treatment possibilities. I'll get off my soap box now😢😏

Mets, are you looking for info on hypothyroidism?? hashimotos disease? Or something along those lines... I was diagnosed with Grave's Disease (hyperactive thyroid) and they removed mine. It took 2 years to get the synthroid levels correct but I still have many issues because of not having my thyroid. (Like regulating my temperature, feeling fatigued and weight gain. I'm sure there are sites that you can find that will address your questions. Try putting the word thyroid in the search area on this app and see how many older threads there are about it. There may be some helpful info there. Sending well wishes and I hope this was helpful to you.πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•
