Hi I've only been diagnosed with hypothyroidism for six months but in that time my hay fever like allergy has completely gone. I've gone from one anti histamine pill a day to none so that's good. At the moment not feeling too bad but when my doctor upped my dosage after 3 months i had a lot of symptoms e.g. heart palpitations, nausea, anxiety, croay voice, muscle weakness. Thankfully after six weeks apart from the muscle weakness and the croaky voice i feel fine most of the time with the odd day of utter exhaustion which i just give into. I had a private blood test a month ago which confirmed I had Hashimotos hypothyroidism. I live in Spain but am in the UK at the moment and I'm going back to my doctors when I return next month armed with a ton of info. Just hope he'll listen to me. He's a newly qualified doctor so he's young and enthusiastic. I never had a symptom before diagnosis apart from unexplained weight gain but as I'm 72 I put it down to old age lol

Hi Louise I think I was just having a rant lol x

Are you on thyroid treatment? I also suffer with many allergies although non identifiable. Wondering if these could have something to do with large thyroid
