I have hashimato’s thyroid for more than 10 years and using 75mg Levothyroxine Teva right now. I've got aching joints, feeling low in general but since I started to attend gym it is better. I was under medicated with a doctor I realized later which affected my whole health during pandemic in many ways . The brain fog is here but less powerful. But I feel like there is inflammation between my joints. Especially my left hand.. It hurts and swollen and leaning and skewed. Do you think every health problem is connected to the HT? Really going gluten or daily free helps all the people? I increased my protein intake and trying to eat healthy as much as possible and it helped me. But I still don’t feel healthy. Friends and family don’t believe me and think hashimato’s can’t have such effects.. My GP thinks I should do the blood test every 12 months and she did not change Teva prescription before. I don’t feel nauseous with Teva but I want to try something to recover more.
Please share what helps you? Should be tested in private clinics? And which test should I ask for and what is the approximate price of consulting a private doctor in London?
I am happy to find out the Thyrois UK community. I learn a lot here ✨
