I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's a week ago. I have been hypothyroid for two years but went to the GP in January as I was so tired all the time and the joint pain was unbearable. She ran a whole host of blood tests and referred me to endocrinology and the endocrinologist diagnosed Hashimoto's. He also thinks I have a Vitamin D deficiency, sleep apnoea and addisons so I have a barrage of tests coming up. He increased my levothyroxine, even though my thyroid function is within normal ranges and recommended that I take Selenium for the Hashi's. I have been signed off work for two weeks as the fatigue is unbearable at the moment. Does anyone have any advice for how I can combat this as I think I will be no better when I need to return to work.
