... Your old doctor doesn't know what he's talking about. Untreated thyroid disease can, and often does, cause mental symptoms. That's why so many of us are put on psychiatric meds before we are properly diagnosed. For much of my early adulthood I lived with a feeling of unfocused dread. I used to have panic attacks. I was depressed. I was sure I had breast cancer at one point.... (15 replies)
... ew endo is very nice and spent almost an hour with me which I found rewarding. After all blood testing was done results showed that I am now carrying graves and hashimoto antibodies he says I have both. He kept me on a low dose of methimazole and scheduled another spot in 6 weeks. ... (0 replies)
... I have had symptoms over the past 14 or so years that I keep try to explain away as age, being overworked, etc. Recently, I have finally found that thyroid dysfunction may be my problem but my doctor has totally shut me down. I asked for an Endo referral after my TSH reached 4.7....normal for me in the early years had been 1.5 to 2. My doctor did so reluctantly, after I had... (3 replies)

... Well, I'm not the best at interpreting the numbers, but if my TSH was as high as yours I wouldn't feel well. Hopefully one of the more senior people will fill in the gaps. I admit to a bias against anti-depressants, and I am no doctor, but I am absolutely convinced that they do more harm than good. There is no blood test, no brain chemistry test, that can show that...

... Hello...I'm no Health expert and I just never knew their was so much about Thyroid Disease until now. I was on Synthyroid 75mcg for a lot of years. My story is that I had to switch to Levo 75mcg back in 2012 cause of financial issue, and my body went all outta whack. So I decided to go back to my Synthyroid 75mcg and now I'm thinking a lot better but my hair seems off. My... (0 replies)
... I'm no expert, but from what I've read there are several other thyroid antibodies that are not commonly tested for so it may be possible you are still suffering from an autoimmune thyroid disorder. The swings in thyroid levels would fit the pattern seen in many who have the earlier stages of Hashimoto's. I'm sure your doctor will be keeping an eye on things and you'll want to... (4 replies)
... Hashimoto's disease jumps to mind. It's an autoimmune disease and the most common cause of hypothyroidism in our part of the world. Pregnancy sometimes triggers worsening problems with thyroid regulation in people who have it. It may not cause problems until weeks to months after giving birth. You have the high levels of antibodies (>1000) that would certainly point to... (24 replies)
... Hi, I've was diagnosed with Hashimoto's 3 years ago and have been taking around 150mcg of levo since. I felt okay for a while but a year ago I started feeling ill again. Done loads of research and read all about gluten free, supplements, lifestyle etc to put Hashimoto's into remission. So, I went gluten free for about 2 months and later started having palpitations. Went to... (4 replies)
... As far as I know anxiety is usually associated with hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto's can cause hyperthyroidism. Have you had your thyroid checked since these symptoms started? If your thyroid isn't the cause you may want to consult a neurologist. (3 replies)
... Was just wondering about a tremor trembling type feeling I have a lot. I seem to be anxious about something all the time. With the holidays coming up I feel overwhelmed and almost wish I didn't have to entertain and cook like I used to. Am 57 and was definitively diagnosed about 3 yrs ago with hashimoto's. Have been treated for hypo for 20 yrs but never knew anything about... (3 replies)
... Your TPA is very high, and most likely indicates that you have an autoimmune disorder, probably Hashimoto's. Your endo will undoubtedly want to get you in to discuss this result. (24 replies)
... I'm trying to get some opinions on my symptoms/history and lab work, I just started seeing an endocrinologist this last Monday and won't hear from him for a few more days. I'll start with a brief history. My mom is diagnosed with Hashimoto's. My whole life I knew she had "thyroid problems" but just recently learned it was Hashimoto's. I've been diagnosed with generalized... (24 replies)
... Hi B179143 I'm probably not the best person to answer your question but I had a similar experience when I was taking supplements, probiotics etc, although I did have hyper symptoms the thyroid function blood tests came back normal. I understand that if thyroxine is taken with food or drink or any substance, it can inhibit the absorption of it, so if you was taking your... (4 replies)
... Thanks Finnmaid, I've got an appointment with the surgeon/endocrinologist on the 18th of December so will speak to him about my concerns then. If taking it out will stop the pain I'm all for that. I don't have Hashimoto's so don't know if it will be the same for me but I can always dream. :round: (2 replies)
... One thing to consider is having your doc check for TPO antibodies. Maybe you're just in the beginning stages of Hashimoto's so your levels don't look off yet, but they are headed there. I am currently experiencing all kinds of symptoms and my levels look fairly "normal" and I've heard/read from lots of people that this happens. That being said, I wouldn't recommend... (1 replies)
... I have a similar question. I've been on the same dose of Synthroid 75mcg for the last 5 years with my TSH always being right around 1. About 4 months ago I decided I'd had enough of my IBS (diarrhea) so I started eating better and taking a probiotic. This has helped my stomach/digestion problems extremely well. But, about a week or two after started the better diet/probiotic I... (4 replies)
... I'm so sorry you've been through this for so long. Your story is like mine; I went from doctor to doctor for 20 years and all I got was referrals to psychiatrists who gave me anti-anxiety medication. For some reason doctors often fail to perform the simple blood test that could save us so much pain. Yes, your symptoms are spot on for Hashimoto's. Hopefully you'll be... (2 replies)
... Now after all these years I FINALLY go to a endocrinologist and they tell me I might have Hashimoto disease. ... (2 replies)
... Hi Sadtosay My diet was quite low in carbs so maybe that was a factor but unfortunately the palpitations have come back even though I'm on a 'normal' diet. I've taken your experience on-board so I'm having lots of carbs and I'm hoping that's gonna work. I'll keep you posted. I only seem to get the palps in the evening when I'm relaxing after work. Not sure if this is... (4 replies)
