Since the beginning of August I’ve been highly symptomatic (stomach distress, nearly constant pounding heart, higher pulse, nausea, rolling eyes, twitching hands and eyelids, etc.). I kept wondering what had suddenly changed…my habits were still the same: every two hours, I diligently ate high protein-low glycemic-gluten-free snacks and meals [mmm…mmm good ;(]. But to no avail…every day was a little worse than the prior. I began experiencing symptom bursts nearly every hour with very little quality sleep. On the plus side–I did lose weight.
I had a gut feeling (that wasn’t distress), did a bit of research and voila — I had 11 out of 13 adverse effects of too much thyroid medication which was further increasing my already high adrenaline (too much insulin also increases adrenaline). For two months I’d been in a constant state of fight or flight.
