Hi, I have been diagnosed as hypothyroid for about 3 years and then was told by my GP after having a blood test that I had an autoimmune thyroid condition.
After taking advice on this forum, I went gluten free and my antibodies have reduced greatly.
I have had all sorts of funny changes recently eg swelling of my hands when walking, ulcers in my mouth for a couple of days then disappearing, feeling of all fingertips burning as if I’ve burnt them on a cooker and then they all dried and peeled and had small blisters on some fingers then disappeared!! Small sore lumps appearing on a couple of fingers then disappearing after a few days, hip joint suddenly hurting then better after a couple of days etc etc. I went to the doctors and she ran some blood tests - one being ANA. The results have come back and they are all clear and she said I don’t have an autoimmune condition. Is this correct - my autoimmune condition has gone?? She said to keep an eye on any changes. I originally went in asking for an increase in my Levo but she said I don’t need one.
