When you are living with an illness (just as when one is a specialist in anything else) it is easy to lapse into technical-speak. Please would posters try to give the full name of their symptom or illness first before using shorthand.
I have been hypothyroid for a couple of years and read this site regularly, but am constantly stopped by initials I don't understand or have to mentally run through umpteen alternatives to work out what it seems to be.
I don't want to winge but am often pulled up short on a post or question because it does not make sense. Many thanks for your co-operation.
