Thank you for the info from Dr. Lowe's Q and A on puffiness and hypothyroidism and FMS. (from my post on inflammation and FMS, Feb. 14.) I'm especially interested in what he said about carpal tunnel syndrome and all this. Where did you find the information? I'll need a reference if I am to bring this to my provider's attention. It would just be too wonderful if this is the answer for me and I could avoid the carpal tunnel surgery. (and maybe lose some weight as a side benefit, too??? I can hope.) Thank you, Beth.
