I too have thyroid trouble, fibro & CFS plus other longstanding medical conditions.
It sounds like your immune system is battered. You could try either Vitamin B complex or eachinea - both supplements good for boosting immune system but you won't see any benefit until you have taken them for a few weeks.
I would try also a lovely soak in the bath with some essential oils. Everyone is different but anything is worth a try.

Really only you know your body and how you feel. If you can't go to work you can't.

Have you been and had your thyroid levels checked lately? I also have the same issues as you. Sometimes because of other meds and things going on in my body I need my thyroid med adjusted. I have no thyroid, cancer, it seems odd for me to say I have a thyroid issue.

Expect the worst in life you won't be disapointed and you'll be prepared!

Have you spoken to your head about just how badly you are being affected at the moment?? If not, it might be something to consider doing as, with a bit of idea bouncing around, there might be a plan that could be put in place to help make things a little easier, more manageable for these times.
