Hello, I have been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. I am seeing a great doctor. We are trying to get the medicine level figured out. I have been an athlete my whole life. Now if I work out very much I end up with either fatigue or waking up in the middle of the night my shivers (I'm not cold that is just the best way I can describe what is happening). I have not been able to work out enough to get a sore muscle. I want to be/stay in shape but this is tough!!! I try to only work out every other day and walk 1.5 miles on my off days. Any suggestions? I am competitive and doing so little is tough.

Oh wow, a post that fits right into my situation. I was an athlete, and quite healthy n fit. I went from a muscular and competitive cyclist, to 50 pounds overweight in 6 months. I lost the ability to ride long distances, and eventually lost the ability to walk 200 feet or get up from a chair. In the end, I needed T3 hormone, taken 6x per day to make my muscles function again. My doc has never seen anything like this. I also need Prednisone for fatigue related to high RNP antibodies, and Hashimoto's related inflammation.

I am hope that you are doing better! It is nice for me that someone else understands! The specialist I am seeing is still trying to get a prescription dialed in. It seems like when my does is increased I will well for a bit and then it slides backwards again. Did you have a plan for getting back to working out that worked for you?

I'm currently taking only T3 hormone 12.4mcg/6x day, and Prednisone 10mg 1x per day.

I'm able to work out again. Not like before, but I'm 58 so I am a bit older now. Did a great, fairly hard core bicycle ride this AM.
