I am already on ataxia uk, and now saw the thyroid uk. Unfortunately, I fit on both. I've been hypothyroid for some time, but was only finally medicated in 2016. Meanwhile, I also found out that I do have ataxia, so I'm a bit of a mess. It has, however, caused me to do so much more research, and learn a lot. I've found that you really have to be your own health advocate, as doctors do not know as much as they should about treating such offbeat conditions. Most doctors look at me like I've just landed from Mars when it comes to my ataxia. Great support. NOT. My hypothyroidism was behaving itself until recently. Now I've been extremely fatigued and feeling very "unwell". It has been suggested that I also have Hashimoto's. My reading suggests that it is hard to know which condition comes first; not unlike the chicken and egg debate. Anyway, I am so glad to find another site to help me unravel the mysteries of my deteriorating body, and share any info I unearth. BTW, I live in the USA. My best to all fellow sufferers!!
