Karina Donnellan shared her story in the harmony magazine. I too have thyroid issues with many symptoms. I recently found out I also have sjogrens desease and feel Karina is displaying a lot of the same symptoms. Sjogrens takes on average 7 years to diagnose, doctors don't really know about it and everyone thinks the symptoms are dry eyes and mouth, if only it was. It effects all the body and gastric problems are common. Just thought it was worth mentioning.
