Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome.

I have just been reading about WTS, very intresting to me as all my thyroid tests have always appeared normal. But I have a lot of symptoms of hypothyroidism. I first started about 3 years ago with unexplained very dry eyes, then I was diagnosed with a dry mouth, I do feel tired a lot and I also feel the cold, I have a heartbeat on average of 59-62 beats per minute which I was told is low, I have developed chronic muscle weakness mainly in my shoulders, and have actually got wasted muscles, up to now this also is unexplained, blood tests all seem normal. I have checked my temperature and it was 35.75 degrees C. on both occasions. Which I believe is around 96 degrees F. Any comments would be grately appreciated. Do you think it is possible I may have this problem? I am a 34 year old female.

A chronically low temperature indicates hypometabolism. The cause is undetermined. The most common cause for a syndrome such as you describe is mercury or other heavy metal toxicity, the most common source being a mouth full of fillings (mercury amalgams) which has typically damaged gut function and helped set up and maintain the so-called (mis-named) "yeast syndrome." Because doctors have not been able or willing to make this diagnosis, the vast majority of patients have been told there is nothing wrong with them and kindly go home and suffer. As to Wilson's - after years of consideration, I do not believe Wilson's syndrome actually exists.
