Only diagnosed less than 3 weeks ago after couple years of repeated chest infections & flu like symptoms aches pains in neck & shoulders. Would be off for a week sick back a then back to work for month or so then ill again eventually issued a warning for being off sick so many times. So had to keep going work when feeling so ill . Warning now expired,I am ill again I requested tests when I visited my GP then diagnosed with under active thyroid prescribed levothyroxine 50mcg then was told take at least 6 weeks to take effect. I have been off work 4 & half weeks now & due to return 2/11 I am not sure whether to take chance return to work or get extended sick note. Fed up being home need normality & feel guilty taking so much time out off work
