Hemp or CBD oil
Hi, I’m looking for advice, please don’t bash. Kind of a long post… a little backstory first: I’m 27 years old. About 1.5 years ago I started feeling awful- no energy, completely drained all the time plus some other female issues (bleeding). I finally went to the dr. in June 2016. After seeing my doctor and having a biopsy (which thankfully was benign), I had my blood tested and found my thyroid levels were low. He had me start taking levothyroxine which I took for about 6 months. In December I had an extreme allergic reaction to what we thought was a different laundry detergent and had to get several steroid shots. For the most part the redness went away but would randomly come back, looks like little blisters. In February I had surgery for the female issues. A month later I still felt awful and continued to break out, so I found a different doctor. she diagnosed me with Hashi’s and changed my meds to Nature Throid, she also added Vitamin D3 5000 and selenium. She recommended i remove gluten from my diet as well to reduce the breakouts. I felt great for a while, the vitamin d3 really helped but now im constantly breaking out. I never had any food allergies before and lived a very healthy life. Now if I eat bread or gluten items I break out really bad, so I avoid those foods. However, I’m struggling because I’ve recently began breaking out worse (which is depressing because I thought I had it under control with the benadryl and hydrocortisone) and I’m not even eating gluten foods.
I plan to make another Dr appointment tomorrow and get referred to an allergist but I’ve been researching and am currently considering trying Hemp or CBD oil. Does anyone have any experience with this? I’m desperate for some relief. I break out mostly on my face, and upper body… its just frustrating because i didn’t have this problem a year ago an my entire face turns red and itchy. Since I’m working on my teaching degree, I really want to get this under control- it’s depressing, embarrassing, and uncomfortable 🙁
