As I posted the other day, I'm newly diagnosed with Hashimoto's but also have Type 1 Diabetes, Vitiligo and Alopecia Areata.
I seem to have unexplained bruising appearing now, on my lower legs and elbows and I have pins and needles in my feet.
I've been started on Levothyroxine and am currently awaiting the results of an ultrasound on my throat and thyroid gland. I know it takes a while for the Levo to kick in and I am getting over a bad bout of glandular fever too but I just don't feel right. I feel like someone is slowly pulling the plug on my energy.
Ideally, I'd like to see someone who specialises in autoimmune diseases, so that my 'whole picture' can be looked at, rather than see an endo who might specialise in maybe diabetes but has little knowledge of other autoimmune problems?
From looking on the net, I see in the States they have specialist autoimmune centres. Do we have any in this country,does anyone know? I can't see any mention of such a place.
Failing that, can anyone recommend where I look to find a specialist that can pull treatment of varying autoimmune issues together?
Thank you for reading.
