I have been diagnosed with both Hashimoto's thyroiditis and myasthenia gravis. Both my neurologist and my endocrinologist have said there is definitely a correlation between the two, in fact they have even tested me for other autoimmune disorders because according to them, if you have 1 autoimmune disorder you more than likely have more than 1 or will develope another. I am also borderline celiac, I avoid gluten all together.. Currently my symptoms for MG are ptosis of my left eyelid and joint and muscle fatigue..my symptoms for the hypo HM are leg and ankle swelling, 7 benign nodules on my thyroid, hairloss, hives on my neck and inner wrists, weight gain with the inability to lose even with diet and exercise, insomnia, lymph swelling, and heavy stiff legs even with rest plus achilles soreness... I don't have any breathing issues but I do choke randomly or food/water "goes down the wrong tube" and I am very clumsy, I fall easily 3 times a week even when walking in flats.
I am only 28 and female, my doctor feels like I will eventually go into remission from the MG but I will not take Prednisones Due to the fact that I am already gaining weight from the thyroid issues. Currently I was just switched from 100mg of levothroxine to 125mg of synthroid and I take 60mg 4 times a day of mestinon, I take vitamin d and b-complex daily along with a multi.. If anyone knows of any other supplements or treatments or even diet modifications please let me know.. I have really studied a lot about both of my issues but I feel like I am at the point that I need to speak with others that are going through this to..
