So many of us appear to have Thyroid issues, and in the main they often do not get picked up. I had to go outside of the NHS and do detailed tests where it showed up. I might add the right professor in London picked up my clearly obvious reflexes which behave differently when you have Hypo Thyroid issues such as I have. Also as Professor Hughes clearly states to be affected by one or other of the Thyroid Disorders is common with Hughes Syndrome as is Sjogrens Disease. This useful paper, (a bit wordy), pinched off the Thyroid UK Forum, explains why it can easily be missed. I had most of the physical symptoms and still I did not fit into the narrow parameters. As soon as I started treatment, I lost my night time palpitations and also the unremitting Insominia I had.
