Hi, just joined. I wanted to say I was diagnosed 3 years ago and unfortunately foe some bizarre reason developed foor intolerences and delayed allergy responses to foods that I ahd been ok with previously. It took 12 months to realise this during which time I was very poorly and not improving at all. So if anyone is feeling very tired, rashes, aches, pains and more following diagnosis, try and see if you have developed intolerences etc, changed my life completely once I new what I was dealing with and though my life has changed, it has improved so much to when I was very poorly. Since I found the problems and dealt with them I got back to my running and have completed 5 Half Marathons. So dont give up. I am on 40mcg of T3 Liothyronine as I could not tolerate the T4.
