I just wanted to see if anyone has had any experience with an underactive Thyroid?
I have been living with Lupus for 8 years now and lately I have been feeling exhausted, my brain just seems to be in a haze, my muscles ache and cramp I've put on weight and I just feel tired and fed up.
At first I was thinking these were usually pre-flare symptoms however I've been to see my doctor and my bloods came back fine with no sign of a flare.
After doing some research I realized that most of my symptoms are the same to those of an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and apparently this is common with people with SLE.
I'm arranging to have my Hormones tested to see what's going on with me however I just wanted to see if anybody here has had the same experience?
I'm only 29 and already on about 7 different types of medication I really hope this is not the case.
