I certainly have had a rough go of it and am thinking not enough selenium was my problem. Since November my neck/thyroid has been swollen. Started after I took the high dose probiotics. I stopped everything for about a week and a half and swelling went down. Then started Iodine back up...but very slowly (at 1 Iodoral per day, going up from there). I previously had been at 100-125 mg Iodine daily, but had horrible heart palps and anxiety. Couldn't handle it.
Slipped into hypo territory big time around Christmas time. Have been so fatigued and experiencing swollen throat again. Can't do much of anything, so lazy...also really cold first thing in the morning.
I'm back up to 100-150 mg. BUT now I have increased selenium 400 mcg-600 mcg because I have been reading Ferventer's posts and am giving that a try to see if my new goiter/swelling/whatever is going on will subside with higher selenium. I had only been doing 200 mcg before with higher dose. I'm really scared, people. Have really slipped into a downward spiral here. My health/well-being has never been so bad. I don't want to go to the doc because I know I'm hypo right now and prefer not to go on meds. My family has a history of hypo T.
Can't stop the probiotics because I'm finally having normal colored bm's, and more frequent. Sigh...I'm hoping I will get better...
