I'm new here so this is my first post.
I had several heart ablations done March 2015 and never really recovered. Had a load of tests done and was diagnosed as having hyperthyroidism. Was immediately put on 25g of carbamazol which has been now reduced to 5mg. Since March 2015 I've also been diagnosed as coeliac despite never having any symptoms until I had the camera down my throat and a blood test. I've also had systemic lupus for 30 years. For the past 18 months I have visited the doctor as I feel like a dead slug ! Blood tests have been done and they continue to tell me everything is good ! The last visit to the doctors last week the latest news is my cholestrol is 7.9 and they insist I go on statins. Reading the reviews on statins I think that would be the worst thing for me. I already have muscle and bone ache, extremely fatigued, yet the doctors keep telling me that my vitamin and minerals levels are fine, my thyroid is under control and there is no reason for me to feel the way I do ! I have never been told my thyroid reading and neither by HDL or LDL for the cholesterol reading. Checking on the thyroid UK website apparently my blood tests can appear normal even if they are not ! I run my own business and have to fight the urge to lie on my desk every afternoon to sleep, despite being in bed at 8pm. every night.
I've gone from being a very active person to a zombied geriatric ! I need help but have no idea what to try next. Since the coealic diagnosis my diet has never been so healthy, I take supplements as I believe being coeliac they are not absorbed through my diet. I just need help and advice please !!
Apparently having thyroid problems can result in becoming coeliac.
