Hi, I was recently diagnosed with uat and am taking thyroxine (100mg) and my doc has said he feels it will have to be increased. I didn't get told what the results of the blood tests actually were. He did check my antibodies and said the uat was caused by my immune system.
My doc is very thorough though and I was sent for cystoscopy and am going for kidney scan due to blood constantly showing in urine with no infection.
I was diagnosed with ITP (low platelets) last June ( now in remission). I was treated with steroids, Azathioprine and had immunoglobulin transfusion. I also was referred to rheumatologist as my haematologist thought I may have SLE lupus but this was dismissed by rheumy. My GP has said I definitely have some inflammatory condition and he will monitor me every 3 months.
I have gained such a lot of weight and now find even standing for more than a few minutes my back gets painful. Walking is awful - the pain makes me feel like such an invalid. I feel like I'm never going to get better. I have no energy for exercise and my stamina is now very poor. I would really appreciate some advice. I feel as though I am never away from my GP!!
