Yes, I should be seeing a doctor, but I'm waiting for my insurance to finally kick in. I have Hashimotos with all the usual symptoms, brittle hair that has now decided to run for the hills and off my head which is now clogging the drain, fatigue, brittle nails, low sex drive, irritability, my mind has dulled considerably... all that being said, I now have allergy induced asthma that a rescue inhaler can hardly take care of and I have to take Claritin D 24 non stop around the clock just to control the allergies, even this time of year. I also was diagnosed 2 years ago with Migratory Mucosis (geographic tongue - another autoimmune disorder (benign) in which case I have white patches all over my tongue, but this last breakout won't go away. Also I have body aches that are becoming more frequent. I feel like I'm getting the flu and will surely wake up the next day sick as a dog, it starts in the afternoon but it usually goes away before I go to bed. Is this related to thyroid? :(
