May 17th, 2011. Latest MMS update.


Latest update…

My MMS seems to be working, although I have had some symptoms such as ear/jaw pain, some minor joint (hand/fingers) pain, buzzing in right ear a few times, hot/cold flashes, etc.  This is only about 1/4 of my symptoms so apparently the MMS is working.  I am however considered about the ongoing ear node pain.  I am hoping to get another MRI, this time the ear/neck region to find out if the asymmetrical tonsil, etc. is tumor.

The MMS is making it difficult for my thyroid to absorb the medication.  My latest blood test from a few weeks ago stated I was a 3.52 (“Normal is up to 3.0 and then it’s classified “hypothyroidism, Note:  These are the new and revised standards — many medical agencies have not updated the standards, nor done the research).  At any rate, my thyroid levels are supposed to be between 1.5 and 2.5.

To say the least, because my thyroid medication is not being properly absorbed no matter how long I space out the medication, I am having to raise my dose.  I am now going to be taking 50 mcg of Synthroid instead of 37 and hope that there’s an improvement.  If not, I will continue to be extremely sluggish to where I can only do literally one activity a day.  Proper thyroid functioning is imperative.

New blood test results will be in next week.  In 3 months I will get tested for lyme disease again to officially see if the MMS has been “working.”

So yeah… to say the least, due to the lack of thyroid medication absorption, I have been insanely tired and sluggish, having the energy to only do one event a day.  It is imperative that people get their thyroid checked and look at their own scores and be sure that the thyroid’s TSH falls between 1.5-2.5, despite what one’s “doctor’s office” says.  I have been to 3 facilities now in 2 different states with outdated thyroid guidelines.

Once my energy goes back up, I will post more.

Thanks for staying tuned!
