I've been told that I have positive antibodies for this but as I don't have dry eyes or mouth the consultant decided I was not actually presenting with it. I have a very hoarse voice and feel pretty tired all the time, is this anything to do with it?
Consultant has discharged me but told me to contact him if I have any worries.

I do have an under active thyroid (hashimoto's disease) and also coeliac disease. These are also autoimmune diseases so it looks like I'm starting to collect them! My tsh was initially 150 so now with the help of 175microg. thyroxine I feel loads better but somehow still not quite right.

Thanks, I will have a look at the lancet site as I would appreciate anything that might help make my life easier - it could just be 4 children normal tiredness although I seem to have lost track of what is normal!!
