Hello folks - im new to this forum, so if i mess up how it's done, forgive me. Anyhow - for the past 2 years i've been poorly. For the last 6 months illness has progressively become worse. Having been tooing and frowing the doctors, yestarday i had the diagnosis of Auto immune attacked thryroid. I know nothing much about the illness. I've been given 50ml dosage of Levothyroxine to take daily. The question i have is this. For the best part of the last 6 months i have been unable to walk properly or without pain 80% (there abouts) of the time. I spend most of my time being asleep. Im in cronic pain with my joints (been tested for various arthritis, but nothing showing in tests) Is there any possibility the the pain and exhaustion are connected with the Thyroid issue? My doc said i should start to feel a little better soon, but seems perplexed by my exhaustion and chronic pain. I'd appreciate any views or experiences anyone has had or if you views are that my symptons do not fit with a Thyroid problem, please do say. Many thanks. Helen
