Hi all just been to occupational health today in Edinburgh .. The guy was absolutely fantastic, he was very clued up on thyroid disease.. he will be explaining that I will have more absences due to hypothyroidism & all the complications & symptoms that come with it.. From pain to exhaustion & cannot be compared to any other sufferer as we all suffer differently as individuals.. He has also said that hypothyroidism is a chronic disease with no cure, but can be managed with the CORRECT medication... Feel like I've just stuck my fingers up to my pompous young know it all boss.. Btw these were historic absences, I was absent with a torn shoulder which happened due to work in July.. I've had no thyroid illness since starting NDT in February!
