Hi all. As per first post I am newly diagnosed with Hashimotos. I take 125 mcg Levo, still have fatigue, muscle aches, eczema. Any idea when this will improve. I had my dose increased 3 weeks ago and I was diagnosed with hypothyroid in 2013 before the Hashimotos was found.
I seem to have a bit of rheumatism too, my knees and ankles ache and swell during damp and sometimes humid weather. I can't see how, I am 32 years old and rheumatoid factor was negative!
I am worried about my FT4, isn't it a bit high? I also take a B complex, vitamin D (1000iu oral spray) and vitamin C (1000mg) for adrenals. I started the vitamin C this morning, the vit D since September last year. Also iron deficient and eating gluten for coeliac blood test. And I have been advised by a very helpful person to take selenium, how much please? GP has said it's in range but if I have Hashis then I do need it, no? Also probiotics?
