Hello. My name is Angie. In 1998 I was diagnosed with SLE (Lupus). In 2011 I was diagnosed with COPD. A month ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. It is more than likely that my Lupus damaged my thyroid. While I was shocked to find this out it actually explained a lot about the way I'd been feeling for a long time and especially the unexplained weight gain. I'm almost through my first month of Synthroid. I am hoping this medication will help get things under control. I also look forward to any information and support I may find here.
