I would like to hear from anyone who has an atrophy thyroid gland & there experience (when, symptoms, how recognised/diagnosed, illness or congenital born atrophy with reduced gland).
I have literally a one sided (half) gland. Told born with (really?... how could they know that!). It was discovered by US after I complained of thyroid area discomfort.
I suffer all the hypothyrdroid symptoms in a big way, on/off low cortisol, micro pituitary adenoma in last year, etc.
Endo says my atrophy thyroid is fine & coping (hormones generally normal) & quite ignorant towards me.
My life has changed massively in last three years, particularly poor mobility and pain. Diagnosed with CFS/ME but even specialist for that says I display the symptoms but also others over & above.
Just wondering if anyone else with atrophy thyroid could share their experience with me to try & determine my problems.
I am at the point where I feel I am bashing my head (& life) against a brick wall.
Really appreciate hearing from you. Sorry for long post.
