    Hi there, it all depends how long before being diagnosed was you hypo for. How long did you feel unwell before being diagnosed?

    I wouldn't be too concerned, keep with it. Give it at least 8 weeks, before you start feeling any better!!!

    I am not really sure but looking at it .. i would say summer 2007 i started to feel unwell .. and slowly got worst over the time ...

    The belly aches have almost gone .. but still feeling very tired and drained ..

    I will give it untill this course of tabs is finished which is 3 months and my next blood test and see then ..
