Hello, I'm sammi, I'm 40 and I've been diagnosed today as having an underactive thyroid after years of tests.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 26 years ago but a couple of years ago my friend told me to look into thyroid testing as I have 90% of the symptoms, but every test came back negative. I was referred for weight loss surgery and my consultant requested 2 different tests which came back positive.
I'm actually pleased in a way because I finally have a reason behind all of these symptoms that I can PROVE and I may start to feel normal.
I'm stuck in a wheelchair due to pain and exhaustion and I'm 8 stone overweight and I would love to be better.
