I am very very confused.... I have had an underactive thryoid since i was 16 (now 22)
I have had numerous of health problems since october 2015 and i have been under the rhumotologist for past year as they think i have Undifferentiated connective tissue disease which turns into lupus.
I saw my rhumy yesterday who then brought up that i should be tested for lyme disease as I have had a lesion on my breast for past 8-10 months and nothing is getting rid of it (fungal infection & exzma cream)
He did mention something about my underactive thryoid being connected with this and it confused the hell out of me... I have just read something on the internet which someone has said lyme disease actually brings on underactive thryoids... Im quite worried now as iv been ill for nearly 2 years and if it is lyme disease but if i have had it since i was 16 or prior and then developed the underactive thryoid?
I have a pretty big family and i am the only one with a thyroid disorder and connective tissue disease.
