Before hypo diagnosis felt very healthy and fit with great energy. A random blood test showed I had 26.4 tsh and 600 antibodies. Doc put me on levothyroxine, within 4 weeks felt like I was dying and did not even have energy to get out of bed. Stopped meds and energy levels returned, but had developed joint problems. Have since discovered I also have lupus. Lupus med have helped with joint probs. Started taking dessicated thyroid to reduce thyroid levels, but even they make me feel exhausted, so much I cant even work. Don't know what to do know - Does anyone have any advice ?
