Been to see an endo who I was referred to by my GP and a specialist I was recommended on here. Both independently say I have auto-immune thyroditis, CFS and a problem with my immune system.
On the one hand I am relieved that a diagnosis including thyroid issues has been stated, on the other the label of CFS fills me with trepidation. I had Glandular Fever as a teenager and have obvious signs of poor immunity. Should I be concerned about this or has anyone had a positive experience with solving some problems going down this route?
I must say my endo was actually very supportive and I liked him. He said I certainly had a thyroid problem and would be monitoring me. Positively he also said I should not stop taking my nutri supplements for the time being until a clearer picture was established. He wants me to see if I can reduce some symptoms with the help of an immunologist.
Can a multi-diagnosis be a positive thing? This is my question and concern. I am just afraid after all this time of being labelled. I am not depressed and when I research I see cognitive behaviour therapy as a possible management solution and I am filled with fear.
