I was diagnosed with autoimmune thyroiditis in 2011. Gp was no help and started me on thyroxine but this made me worse. Saw a consultant privately as no one seemed to understand the symptoms. Have low vit D too. Went to my new gps with aching joints, feeling tired etc. Went for blood results. He said my pituitary is working very hard at present to keep my thyroid going so I asked what he was going to do to help me. He mentioned my cholesterol was high and that I was to eat more fruit and veg and he would see me in a month! This has made me very frustrated as my brain fog is getting worse! My body aches constantly. What can I do?
