Hi I've had a Lobectomy of the Thyroid gland, and been told by my Surgeon that i'm autoimmune. Firstly does this mean i have Hashimoto's? I'm also suffering from muscle fatigue and joint pain, i have been to the Doctor who's only answer is to wait until my next blood draw (a to see if my dose of Levothyroxine needs to be put up i'm on 75mg and he has suggested to do a couple of other tests one for muscle mass and another to make sure my immune system is not going mad.
I have been advised to go on a gluten free diet, this i have done but have to say i don't feel any effects at the moment, but i'm not sure if this will take time. Are there any supplements i could be taking to help ease my joints and muscles?
