Hello! I'm new here and wondered whether anyone else has my problems!
I'll run through what's gone on up until now.. I had a complete thyroidectomy nearly 5 years ago, due to large growths. It had taken a long time off illness though, before finally being diagnosed. After surgery, took thyroxine. I was good on it for 3 months, then just got worse and worse. I gained 4 stone. The docs told me all my continuing problems were nothing to do with my thyroid, as all the tests were in range! As they were when I had large growths all over it!
Anyway...fast forward and I am now on NDT, Erfa, from Canada, and I am soooo much better. Everything seems to slowly be going back to normal. 2 years now and I'm still getting improvements.
But...my one remaining problem is breathlessness. It just doesn't seem to get any better. I try really hard too. I go on long walks, go to the gym etc, but don't seem to improve. When I read all the thyroid forums, no one else seems to suffer this problem. Is there anyone else out there that does??
