    I "think" I have hypothyrodism, haven't been diagnosed
    onestormie posted:
    This is just my story- anyway, I did some symptom checker and found that one of the things that may be causing some of my symptoms (super exhausted, depressed, hands feet tingling, heart palpatations or arrythmia getting way worse, splinter hemorrhages, etc) is hypothyroidism. So, I have no money to go to the doctor, I won't go on Medicaid even though we definitely qualify. I had been taking seaweed and it seemed to help. I had forgotten to take it for about 4 days since we had run out and yesterday I was seriously dragging. I could barely get up and felt absolutely horrid. I got the seaweed I had ordered in the mail and took a few tablespoons of it. Later in the day I started to feel so much better! I took another tablespoon today so I hope that is what is curing whatever is wrong with me.
    I did not have a diagnosis, so take it for what it's worth, but it's worth trying if you have an aversion to pharmaceuticals and want to try a more natural treatment.
