Patients Like Me

Tomorrow I have my first blood draw through Patients Like Me. Patients Like Me helps patients with fibromyalgia with free blood tests so you can get a better idea of what is going on with your body. Once they have submitted your blood tests and gather the necessary information you should be more informed with what is going on and what is “wrong” with you.

I also have to schedule another blood draw for my doctor to see if I have Hashimoto’s. Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune disorder that attacks your thyroid. I have had hypothyroidism for about 2 years now and have been experiencing some different symptoms that would line up with Hashimoto’s. 95% of people with hypothyroidism have Hashimoto’s so it definitely makes sense for me to get the tests. I am a little nervous about the test but also anxious to take it and get the results!

Does anyone here have Hashimoto’s?
