To the OP - I have Graves disease - 3 years on meds and not a normal hormone level in sight - one minute i'm hyperthyroid, the next hypo... seems like every single blood test caused a change in dosage.
I developed severe anxiety - panic attacks and general anxiety disorder (always felt stressed - like my body was on speed - even when i was hypothyroid) along with Insomnia... ( which sucks the most!)
I found this site while searching for some nutritional info (anti-inflammatory diets basically) I started eating primal about 8 weeks ago, super clean for the last 6 weeks... (I don't eat completely organic... perhaps when my ship comes in... )
I was tested 2 weeks into this, and my hormones were starting to level out... the last blood test (about a week ago ) showed excellent hormone levels, (hypo - but since i was taking a suppressant that meant my thyroid was kicking in...) doc has taken me off my meds for this month - will have full test in a couple weeks..
I FEEL nearly normal again. My anxiety is pretty much gone (i have the occasional bit, but i do actually have some stress in my life )
After a month with PB i was on here asking if anyone had relief from anxiety cause it was killing me. I thought that this woe helped others but wasn't helping me - then about a week later - POOF..... anxiety gone!
Everyone is different, and i may not be out of the woods yet... I think depending on how long and how insidious your disorder is, determines how long it takes to heal... But i encourage you to stick with it.
I learned so much from this forum already, i upped my magnesium, added D3... read loads of posts... you are so not alone...
Keep us posted - i will offer encouragement whenever i can!
