Hi, I was diagnosed with myxoedema 2 weeks ago. Since then I have been coming to terms with the fact that I have to take medication for the rest of my life. The one thing I have really noticed however, is how much of a struggle everyday life is. Sometimes I sit there and think, wow, I can't even get up from the sofa. Is this normal? I am also wondering if there are other things that I can do to try and increase my energy such as exercise and changing my diet? Does anyone know of anything that has helped them?
