Hello all. I have autoimmune thyroid, although never has the word Hashimotos been mentioned to me by the doctor, my antibodies were at 3000 on diagnosis 3 years ago. I also have vit d deficiency and take those daily, as well as Thyroxine 125mg. I have bouts of extreme exhaustion and fatigue, brain fog and cannot function properly, that is where I am right now. I just had a load of bloods taken and my antibodies are at 2000 again. My B12 levels are 177 so am having a course of B12 injections. But I just cant help wondering, surely something else is going on if I am deficient in two vitamins, and my antibodies are so high, apparently the norm is under 60! He is writing to an endocrinologist to find out if the high antibody level could cause my symptoms. I have never had the thyroid thing explained and am really confused as to how it all works and what or who I can ask! I did see an endo 2 years ago when I had these symptoms again, he said I was being over medicated and established my low vit d levels. Really don't know which way to turn or who to ask. How ridiculous is this? My love goes out to all you fellow sufferers. Any advice or input would be amazing x
