I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid around 3 months ago. Since then I have been taking thyroxine. I have a blood test this week because something else showed up in my blood results that suggests another auto immune disease. If it comes back positive my doctor most likely thinks it is lupus.
I have looked at all of the symptoms of lupus, and I seem to have everyone, so it seems most likely. The thing I am really struggling with is weight. I go to the gym 5 times a week, I horse ride, and eat a vegetarian diet. I would have thought now I have also been taking thyroxine for a while I would find it easier to lose weight?
Just looking for any advice or tips or if anyone is living with both
