I'm a 36 year old female. Been struggling with hypothyroidism for years but honestly never took it serious. Half the time didn't even take my thyroid pill. Well recently found out my antibodies are over 900. Have been going to gp but I am now getting sent to endro since gp has never seen antibodies this high. Dr appt isn't till August 17. The dr put me on steroids to help with the pain in my joints but is slowly decreasing and the pain is still there. Started at 10mg twice daily. Down to 5mg twice daily and I am back to pain and extreme fatigue. What's next? I'm so lost. I barely want to move off the couch. I'm pretty sure I could sleep for a couple days but that's not a option. I am a mother of 9 so I don't have time for this pain and fatigue. So I'm here for support and suggestions.
