Jan, what I mean is that I don't think the problems you're suddenly having with Valium are purely down to your thyroid/metabolism. Switching between all those high dose benzos as the pdoc made you do then cutting abruptly back down again would make most people feel like you are feeling. There's no evidence (as yet) that this sudden deterioration is due to a thyrotoxic episode as you and others seem to have concluded. Common sense and personal experience suggests to me that the changes in benzo dose are most likely the major factor in making you feel unwell. Of course it's possible that you are having a thyrotoxic episode in addition to suffering benzo-related withdrawal/adjustment symptoms, and if so you have my sympathy.

As willyee said, I think you would do well to try and work things out for yourself more often, as at times it seems as though there's a competition to be Phillipa's favourite advisor on babble. On the whole I think this causes you more confusion than it solves problems. We can all offer you advice, but some of it may be conflicting - that doesn't mean anyone is lying or trying to deceive you, it's just that we all see different parts of the picture more clearly. It's up to you to put all the advice you get together to build your own views rather than agreeing 100% with any particular poster, because that seems to lead to you getting annoyed or feeling hurt and betrayed when later their advice is no longer what you want to hear.
