Hello, I am new to all this. I got a shock diagnosis on Friday 13 Jan.
Since then I have gone through the shock and am now trying to sort it all out in my head. I am working through anger now because lots of good things are unfolding for me this year and the fatigue is really stopping me in my tracks. I had previously put my symptoms down to menopause and asthma. So am on Hrt as well.
I am asthmatic and went to the dr because I thought I has had a prolonged asthma flare up. I was v tired and v breathless. He was great and sent me for X-rays and bloods. X-ray clear...but bloods show elevated Tsh....more blood show antibodies....so have started on Levo dose 50.
I know this is low dose and expect it will go up. More bloods at the end of the month. However the asthma nurse has just changed my astma inhaler ( Duoresp) and I am balking at starting the new one....because the notes specifically mentions interaction with levo.
I am just looking for advice, information, support...
What to other asthmatics take? is there a connection between asthma/ breathlessness and low thyroid? Are my asthma meds making it worse ( fostair)
....so many questions....there is so much to understand..
Thank you for your help in advance
