Hi again (not her again!)
Only diagnosed with hypothyroidism within last 2 months so prescribed 100mcg levo due to very high tsh levels on first blood test and awaiting results of 2nd lot of tests. I have been busy getting to grips with a change of diet to gluten free and low and behold have been knocked for six by a seemingly innocuous bug .
Started with a shoe throat and has led to the most horrendous upper respiratory infection so bad that I am off sick (again ) and coughing so much I am vomiting .
Now ordinarily I would just let it take its course but I have had this for 3 weeks now and am struggling to shift it .i am eating well ,paying particular attention to optimum vitamin/nutrient intake ,resting well(apart from this bloody bug depriving me of sleep ) and exercising as well as I can with this bug (I walk 3 or 4 miles daily with the dog )
I am so bloody disappointed and a little depressed because I feel shocking .
This may seem like a silly question but with autoimmune disease is one prone to infections running wild and being difficult to fight ?
