Hello,

One day in September of 2001, I went to bed feeling fine. The next morning I woke up feeling like I hadn't slept. I went to be early that day and tried to get 12+ hours of sleep. Same thing happened again and again. Days turned into weeks and weeks into months. For the next 9.5 years I suffered terribly.

I went to all kinds of doctors and specialists. I had every test done that the doctors or I could think of. All results were negative normal. I tried all kinds of treatments and therapies. All affected the symptoms but it never seemed like they got at the root cause. I was baffled and so were my doctors.

I have been searching the web ever since I got sick and I found this radio interview.

I apologize for the outside links. The interview starts five minutes in.

In the interview, Dr. Mark Starr says if you have a low basal/resting body temperature and some other symptom like fatigue and/or pain (i.e. CFS/fibromyalgia) you could be hypothyroid type 2 (HT2).

Hypothyroid type 1 is where your thyroid gland produces little or no hormone and this is easily detected by a blood test (which I had done several times). Hypothyroid type 2 is where your thyroid gland produces a "normal" amount of hormone but your body needs more. Dr. Starr's has a book "Hypothyroid Type 2." I bought a used copy online but it's pretty much the same info as in the radio interview but with more of the history of his research.

I followed his directions. I started taking iodine to build up my adrenals and then I started taking thyroid. Both available online for cheap by several different manufacturers without a prescription. I also supplemented with vitamin C and selenium.

It was like waking up from a nightmare. Within two days I was feeling better. Within a week I knew I had found a major piece of the puzzle. I realize now I was incorrectly diagnosed with CFS/Fibromyalgia. I am HT2. The sad part is that the symptoms were staring the doctors in the face all the time. My temperature has always been low. I was always cold even in the Summer. It's been over a year and I can go a whole day and I still have energy left over at the end of the day. I still need a nap usually but I am down to 8 hours of sleep a day and I do physical things (like mow my lawn again :)

I am not a medical practitioner so make sure you consult a physician and do the research before trying any medication or treatment.

Sincerely,
Lord Ugh
