Thyroid and chronic bladder problems - please help...Hi...
I desperately need some help.
Tried conventional medicine, herbs and no help. I became extremelty senstitive even to herbs.
I tried to answer questions I found on your website, I hope somebody will be able to suggest me something...
Im female, 30 years old, living in Poland.
1. Describe your main suffering? State the correct location.
Diagnose: Hashimoto disease, high TSH (hypothyroidism), high antibodies (antiTPO antiTG).
Need more than 8 hours of sleep, sometimes even dozen or so.
Always tired in the morning, preffer to wake up late
The most difficult symptom is:
CHRONIC BLADDER PROBLEMS. I need your help with this .
Ive had had inflammations few times in about 2,5 years but now its like I have a chronic inflammation but laboratory test showing no substantial microbes, no candida or anything .
I have to go to the bathroom very frequently, cannot sleep at night as I feel constant pressure on bladder and pain (it gets worse at night). Sometimes I just sit on a toilet for hours. Nothing seems to help. No antibiotics, no herbs, not even a healthy diet.
The problem is getting much worse after sexual intercourse (which is painful and almost impossible) so me and my partner we are avoiding this.
Unfortunately the bladder problem is getting much worse even when he touches me sexually and I am getting aroused. The pressure on the bladder then becomes unbearable for days.
2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
I have a nagging pain next to my left shoulder blade and in the heart area after ANY physical effort. Even after washing my hair. Or washing the dishes too vigorously.
Used to dance a lot but I cant as the pain is worse and I have difficulty breathing and have a suffocating feeling in the chest .
3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
I feel hopeless, like being in a trap and I dont know what is going on with me and hot to help myself.
When I feel exhausted due to Hashimoto (when TSH is high, hypothyroidism) I feel like a zombie and I have suicidal thoughts. I will never commit suicide but I have a strong desire/wish to end this suffering and to get away and yet I feel its impossible for me to die as its not my time yet.
I am working on that psychologically and spiritually and my feeling of despair is diminished I have much more hope now but still dealing with a feeling of being trapped.
I want to live here and have so much to do but I wont be able to do this if I will be so exhausted and ill all the time. So there must be a solution for me. Right now I feel that my solution is increasing my self love and Im working with that.
4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.
Hopeless, helpless, despair, even suicidal sometimes as I write before.
5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
I think my thyroid problem started with chronic tonsilities when I was a teenager and only Mercurious Solubilis used to help me. But then it always came back and I was sick again, taking Mercurius again.
I used to think it was connected with amalgams. This year I removed all amalgams.
The condition was also connected with living with very abusive parents emotionally and physically and me suppressing my anger and feelings.
My bladder problems started with few inflammations and went much worse after taking thyroid hormones just like the pain in the heart area.
6. Which time of the day you are worst?
Bladder problems: At late evenings and night
Exhausted: In the morning, even after a long sleep
7. What are the things that aggravate your suffering and those that ameliorate the same? Example: time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.
Feeling better in warmth but not too hot.
Cant stand the wind at all, feel like its raping me.
Cant stand cold temperatures.
Feel bad at the sea, after exposure to iodine.
8. Do you think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
My bladder problems are definitely connected with sexual arousal.
And with anxiety but I dont know if its hormonal maybe??
The anxious feelings (general anxiety for no apparent reasons, hundreds of thoughts in my mind, restlessness I feel and cant calm down my mind).
9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
Warm weather but not too hot.
Hight humidity is making me feel worse.
10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.
Extremely sensitive to other people energy and feelings. Loving. Warm. Emotional.
Open to people, kind and straightforward but I like being alone, love solitude as it heals me.
No toleration of criticism, judgment, getting angry when someone is saying anything bad about anybody, not only myself. Defending weak people. Strong desire of living with my own truth.
Quite anxious and nervous, worrying about health.
Feeling guilty when setting healthy boundaries. Dont want to hurt anybody, very concerned about this.
- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
Not very comfortable.
- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
I hate pity and hate a feeling that somebody may think that I am weak and yet at the same time I need some warmth and understanding but somehow afraid of asking.
Its difficult for me to come forward and say: I need help, please help me and listen to me.
I feel a need to speak in details about my problems with very close people who understands me and when I eventually do this I feel better but only when they believe in me and dont act judgmental or out of pity.
I prefer to be alone when I feel really bad. And cry and then work it out by myself.
But a good talk with a close person is helpful.
I get angry when someone is talking about me as if I was weak.
I am crying when someone is saying how poor my situation is and when they pity me.
- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?
Sentivie to smell, noice and bright light, yes.
Especially chemical substances and perfumes. They making me feel as if I am suffocating. No allergies to nature (grass, animals).
I am extremely sensitive to drugs and chemical substances, thats why Im avoiding medications.
- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc?
I like talking to myself.
- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?
My partner is very loving and supporting. We love each other very much.
My friends are beautiful, lovely people.
Difficult relationship with parents. They used to be very abusive when I was living with them and now Im trying to set healthy boundaries.
11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
I used to have nightmares for many years that my parents wants to kill me or theyre abusing me.
I dont have it now.
Recently I have many dreams of me looking for a lake as the lake is a symbol for me of bliss and happiness.

Loves tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, oregano, basil but not sure if its good (aggrevates the pain in joints and bladder problems).

14. How is your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?

Not well because of bladder problems and pain.
Love sleeping on my side and sometimes on stomach but the bladder feels better when I sleep on the back.
Its difficult for me to fall asleep on the back but I frequently wake up on my back with my arms above my head, even when I fall asleep on my side.
19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?
It was always difficult for me to have orgasm even though I am very sensitive to touch and loved intimacy.
Now the intimacy is almost impossible for me due to bladder problems.
Every time I get aroused the pressure on the bladder is getting worse and I cant sleep and suffer for at least few days
20. Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? How are you different from others?
Extreme sensitivity and empathy.
I can feel people emotions and how they think about me because when they feel anger or thinking bad about me my body is aching, I feel very weak, sometimes cant move, and I feel as if I was all bruised inside or something.
But when they think about me warmly I feel it as if they hug me or caress me and I feel it physically. It doesnt matter if the person is sitting next to me or is miles away from me, I can feel it anyway.
21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
I tried many medications like Euthyrox, Letrox, and then Novothyral, Trijodthyronin and Thybon.
As I wrote I always was extremely sensitive to drugs but I was feeling so miserable that I decided to take them as doctors told me there is no other choice. I tried Chinese herbs before but they didnt help.
After even the smallest bit of Euthyrox (T4 hormone) I was feeling extremely depressed and no energy at all, unable to think, walk, function, thinking only about sleeping and not waking up at all, never.
So they changed it to Novothyral (as its mixed hormones: T4 and T3). Even though I was on a very small child doses I switched from hypothyroidism to hyperthyroidism .. My endocrinologist told me to try other hormone medications that were only T3 hormone (Thybon) but even when I was taking the little, tiny bit of it I still had hyperthyroidism and it was unbearable and dangerous for me so doctors told me not to take any drugs at all
I STOPPED TAKING THEM BUT AFTER THIS HYPERTHYROIDISM EPISODES MY BLADDER PROBLEMS WENT WORSE AND I DEVELOPED THE PROBLEM WITH THE PAIN IN THE HEART AREA AND SHOULDER BLADE THAT I WROTE ABOUT (POINT 2)
22. What major diseases are running in your family?
No major diseases.
23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance.
Quite slim, rather petite. Little hand and feet. Feminine look.
24. If your menstrual cycles are not normal, please describe the irregularities, like pains, moods, flow type, clots etc.
First day of menstruation is very painful. Cold compress helps a little but have to take pain pills immediately because if I dont take them immediately the pain becomes unbearable to the point I can loose consciousness.
Menstrual cycle usually last 30-33 days.
PMS is quite hard I feel mostly depressed, extremely vulnerable and everything hurts me especially being with people.
25. What major diseases have you had in your life and when. Please write them in a chronological manner.
