Your contribution was really helpful... and rather scary. I was diagnosed 6 months ago and am now on 100mcg. It doesn't feel like enough. How did you feel about making your medical adjustments yourself? My doctor told me to give up running. I find this unacceptable. I would really appreciate the contact details of your specialist doctor in Glasgow - although I'm in London.
My problem is tired and aching muscles and inability to recover for ages after running or a gym session. I didn't take part in the British 10k today because I can hardly walk, climb or descend the stairs, sit down or stand up. This is after an hour in the gym 4 days ago.
I'm signed up for the Amsterdam Marathon in October and a charity cycle to Paris from London in September. At the moment the only training I'm doing is taking pain killers. An Internet search for 'underactive thyroid and sports / running' brings up absolutely nothing.
HI sorehip! I have just been diagnosed with hypothyroidism on an incidental blood test...but i have no symptoms! In fact i did an ironman last August....does anyone know whether doing an Ironman can actually CAUSE hypothyroidism. Also could i have the details of the glaswegian doctor?
Thanks so much!
Hi everyone I have just been diagnosed with underactive thyroid. The doctor has put me on 25mcg for 2 weeks then it will upped to 50mcg. I do feel a bit tired but I have still been doing 10k runs but slow 9 min miles way off what I would normally do. So as to not push myself to much. I'm supposed to be doing the VLM this year. The doctor has advised me not to do it but I want to. I though I could jog a bit then walk a bit and so on. I feel I can manage this. What do people think should I still do it or not? I've waited 8 years to get in & can not defer it as its through my club. Should I not do it or do it any advice please
