A Medical Mystery: Thyroid Hormones, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia

"And the people suffering are mainly middle-aged women. Middle-aged women are easy to ignore. Especially stupid middle-aged women who are worried about being overweight and obviously faking their symptoms in order to get drugs which are popularly believed to induce weight loss. It's clearly their hormones. Or they're trying to scrounge up welfare benefits. Or they're trying to claim insurance. Even though there's nothing wrong with them and you've checked so carefully for everything that it could possibly be."

"that the Victorians knew how to cure, and that the people of the 1950s and 60s routinely cured, away."

What was the life expectancy of the Victorians? How does that compare to today?

Was there other prescriptions given at the same time as dissected pig in 50s and 60s?

Prescriptions that are no longer available (mother’s little helper) and could result in people claiming they were cured because they had more energy.
