Hi - Just found out that my thyroid is not functioning at all. Not sure how the readings work, but was told my level was over 700! and there was no reading for the hormone. Put me straight on 100micrograms of Thyroxine and a month later levels have returned to normal. I also had no cortisol so hospital next week for adrenal function tests - could be Addison's disease but Professor thinks not. I had not had any real symptons, just tired (working long hours), dry skin but nothing else.
I was told it will be 6 months before I feel 'better' but not really sure what this means; perhaps a new spring in my step?
Does anyone else have Hypothyroidism and Addisons Disease?
