I haven't posted here much, but I feel like a part of the family as I have been reading on the Adrenal Fatigue and Iodine
Supp. forums for almost two years now.
Anyway, for the last three years I have been struggling with a lot of the same things you all have been going through.
Constant heart palpitions
Cold hands and feet
Lots of etc.
Anyway, about 6 months ago, I decided to get tested for high RT3 and work with a doctor over the phone to resolve it. After talking to him for awhile, he suggested I get tested for Lyme. He was the first one to suggest this and he was right, I tested positive about 4 months ago. I have been doing a little better going the natural route to fight the Lyme (lots of Iodine, Artemesinin, Cat's Claw, salt, Vit C, etc.).
I then stumbled on an article by Dr. Klinghardt talking about something I had never heard of before, Pyroluria. He mentioned that a vast majority of those with Lyme have Pyroluria. After reading the symptoms, all but 2 or 3 fit me perfectly ever since I was a kid. So, I sent in a urine test a couple of weeks ago and sure enough, on a scale of 0-10 being normal and 10-20 being borderline, my level was 23 (I do not remember the units). The results also came back with another scale with 0-250 being normal and I was 405.
So, I have started taking more zinc, started to take P5P for the first time along with Evening Primrose Oil and all my normal supplements.
I guess the takeaway from this is, if you have a lot of the symptoms of Pyroluria (best to do a web search), then you should get the test. It is less than 100 bucks and is really easy to do.
