Hi. I am certainly ill right now with fibromyalgia and other things. My thyroid is underactive and has been for 28 years. It is unstable. I can be overmedicated or undermedicated. I have certainly been viewed with suspician on taking thyroxin over the years and have been repeatedly questioned on if I have taken too much or too little, to my very indignant denials. Because I am ill I am researching stuff. However this morning I had a memory. My son had to have nuclear therapy as a child due to a birth defect that damaged his kidneys. I was warned he would be radioactive for short periods after and to use rubber gloves when changing his diapers. I am sure I used thin rubber disposables..but..I am uncertain on absolute adherence as I cannot remember..my thyroid problems started about 9 months later..anyone any ideas on whether the instability of these thyroid levels can be connected? If they could be where could I go to find out?
