... Hashimoto disease (autoimmune thyroiditis) causes inflammation and slow destruction of the thyroid gland. The inflammation causes swelling and enlargement of the gland, which causes the abnormal sensation in the throat. It often feels like an achy pressure and may be tender to touch. You might feel like you are having to swallow past a lump in throat. An anti inflammatory... (8 replies)
... Mine is for sure related to my thyroid and happens when my TSH is above 1.0. My dr added cytomel after my last post and it helped but the twitches are back sonwecarectexoing my bloodwork again . Many drs do not know this can be a hypo symptom. Mine are not painful either... just annoying and cause me anxiety. (2 replies)
... hv, how are you feeling, I feel as if my thyroid is pressing on some anatomy of my neck also. I do have Hashimoto's with apparently normal thyroid function so as of now I am not medicated. doctors are telling me no it is not my thyroid making me feel like this because I've had a CT scan ,ultrasound and an MRI of my neck. all appears normal with the exception of a diffusely...

... hi, I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's due to positive TPO antibodies and thyroglobulin antibody's. Your post caught my eye because I have been having random muscle twitches and spasms as well as the sensation in my lower abdomen of a baby kicking (I am not pregnant) I can even see the twitch sometimes when I am laying flat.i'm curious if this is part of Hashimotos or...

... No matter how well I take care of my health, diet, meds, it don't matter this hashimoto continues to kick me down no matter what I do to manage it! ... (0 replies)

... Hey ya'll. :) I'm a 23 yr old female with a high likelihood of getting Thyroid issues. My mom and essentially her entire family have Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism. Almost everyone has it. Now I am experiencing health issues and finally had my blood drawn to check for thyroid issues. I was told I was in normal range. However, I know "normal" and optimal are not the same thing...

... In May I had a routine blood test in Greece which showed that I have Hashimoto antibodies and TSH of 5.42. They told me I need to take T4 levothyroxine. ... (1 replies)
... Since your TPO antibodies were only slightly elevated, I would ask for TG antibodies to be checked. Either one if elevated, can indicate Hashimoto disease, and it may be that your TG antibodies are higher, and would answer that question. ... (1 replies)
... Hi guys! :wave: So, I have read the message boards for a long time now, but this is the first time becoming a member. I've suffered from Hypothyroid-like symptoms for seven years now. I recently had an episode of Hyperthyroid-like symptoms, and I was suspecting Hashimoto's so I got my TPO antibodies done again. They were at 11. Lab range only flags it if it is above 34,...

... I am wondering if I one can have a normal life with Hashimoto or do you need to change your life style. ... (3 replies)
... FT4 as much above range as that could easily account for your anxiety and depression. There's a condition called "Hashitoxicosis" that could explain it. The antibodies responsible for Hashimoto's thyroiditis could be attacking the thyroid tissue, causing too much T4 to be released into the bloodstream, without causing TSH to rise as it normally would. In some cases, the... (4 replies)
... A longer answer got lost in posting, Please accept this brief reply with my apologies. Ranges for your labs are needed as they can vary between laboratories. I can’t speak for the UK, but in the US, many conventional doctors will not treat TSH under 10 unless there are symptoms and will not treat for the presence of antibodies alone. Without symptoms you may be... (1 replies)

... The Hashi's has not caused anything for you except thyroid failure. If your thyroid hormones are being appropriately replaced for your body's needs, it will be as if you didn't have Hashi's. Hypothyroidism can cause difficulty with the ovarian process. Sometimes, TPO antibodies are responsible for miscarriage and early delivery. Proper hormone replacement helps with... (1 replies)
... I was diagnosed with Hashi's around 25 yrs old. I'm now 39 and going into Perimenopause. Anyone else with early Perimenopause and Hashis? I guess I'm just surprised this is happening already. I've always had fertility issues because of the Hashimotos, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. My symptoms of Perimenopause are hot flashes, night sweats, feeling cold a lot,... (1 replies)
... I really appreciate your input. I'm out of my league here so far. So it is reasonable that the synthroid would make me too tired to do anything at about noon for the rest of the day? When without it, I can pretty much have energy all day and feel fine, unless something else has caused my symptoms to flare up. (2 replies)
... Hi Nola, your TPO antibodies are indicative of Hashimoto disease of thyroid, which is an autoimmune disease that destroys the thyroid gland over time. ... (2 replies)
... In the same way that you have one shoe size within the standard range that fits your foot, you have T4/T3/TSH levels that are your normal when you're healthy. With Hashimoto's, TSH isn't all that important, because the antibodies can keep TSH falsely low even when T4/T3 levels become deficient. More important are your FT3/4 levels; they are low-normal, which isn't... (2 replies)
... Hello, everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease. It's taken me some time (especially with all of the brain fog and fatigue) to understand the little that I do about what is happening to me. Last year I had an episode- I became very very dizzy, almost fainted and thought I was having a heart attack. ER showed nothing. Doctor gave me vertigo meds... (2 replies)
