All I want for Christmas is…

Thyroxine.

At least, I think so.

It’s all happened rather suddenly – but I realised my resting pulse rate was very low (about 56 when I counted), I was tiring very quickly and felt sluggish and lethargic, had a perpetual headache, and finally, I have developed more wrinkles at the base of my neck (where my fatty goitre used to be).

This seems like post-RAI progress, but typically, I’ve picked the wrong time of year to have it happen. Although I had a blood test a few days ago, I’ll have to wait until the surgery re-opens after Christmas to get the definitive results (and a prescription). But it certainly looks like I’m under rather than overactive. Watch this space..!
