I am waiting for an appointment to see a rheumotologist after having borderline lupus blood results. I was diagnosed with hashimoto's 5 years ago, but constantly suffer with fatigue, aches and pains, depression, swollen glands and headaches, no matter if my thyroid bloods come back 'normal'. I have seen an endocrinologist before and they sent me away with depression and nothing else was looked into! I am so scared this is going to happen again, but with a different consultant/specialist.
Has anyone else got hashimoto's and lupus? Did it take ages to get diagnosed?
I am only 23 and struggling with work because of my symptoms. Plus I had to demand and stamp my feet to have my bloods checked for lupus because the doctor blamed my symptoms on anything but another autoimmune disease.
Thank you in advance!
