Re: high thyroid antibodies
Sarah--I feel for you. I do not know the significance of c1Q antibodies...though I did a little looking around and see some connection to sle. As to the c1q antibodies it may be very helpful for you to go to a lupus board and ask about your antibodies as you did here with the tpo antibodies.
With the c1q antibodies , I would think your dr. would do a complete work up for various autoimmune conditions including sle. I know I had this done...what I remember now is that they looked at various antibodies and something called ANA titres. I am sure that at a lupus board you could get more information on your next step.
As others have suggested , get started on your thyroid treatment , at least that will be of some help as you sort through your other issues. Untreated hypothyroid can cause so many symptoms and make you feel just horrible. So getting started on treatment is important.
Also as my endo has told me it is critical when you have an autoimmune disease to be sure to take special care of yourself not to get run down and all stressed out. At this time, when no doubt you are under a great deal of stress, try to do the basic things that we sometimes are not so good at..
get plenty of sleep
try to eat well...plenty of fruits and vegetables
get daily exercise -to the extent possible
get daily relaxation-guided imagery, meditation, prayer (whatever works for you)
Whatever you can do to support your health will be beneficial for WHATEVER you have going on.
It is not clear from your posts....did the dr. start you on thyroid treatment??
