I have posted before and I finally have some blood results that I had done with blue horizons which have highlighted Autoimmune thyroiditis - which is to be honest what I suspected. I have been suffering from fatigue, cold, constipation, dry skin etc for years but last year started to have bouts where I would feel really ill (like flares). The Dr picked up that I have a high RF (reumotoid factor) and referred me to a reumotologist - a couple of months ago I became really ill again having to sleep 12-16 hours a day, can't walk up the stairs without muscles aching and breathlessness. Have to lie down after having a shower - along with muscle pain hair falling out and the usual. Dr wants me to go to see another reumotologist for a second opinion - I have no signs of RA as in swollen joints other than pain in my left hip which started late last year. As I said above my results from blue horizons indicate autoimmune thyroiditis - could this be what is making me feel so ill as my TSH is only borderline?
I can only up load one picture my other results were
Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies 154.0 IU/ml (consistent with autoimmune thyroiditis)
Range <60 negative
