I was told that Hashimoto's causes hypothyroid and hyperthyroid. I was just wondering what some of your experiences are with this and how often this occurs, i.e. daily? hourly? weekly? Also, how severe are the symptoms of each?
I am told I have Hashi's and am currently not on any kind of thyroid medicine because I'm waiting to take a thyroid scan with uptake. I have been off levothyroxine for nearly 30 days now, although I was taken off after only several weeks of being on it after my diagnosis of hypothyroid. Overall, I am feeling better than I did initially. This may be in part due to the fact that I am on the correct dose of progesterone and taking B12.
I seem to have some days where I feel pretty good and other days where I get extremely tired and weak. I have also had a problem with my blood sugar crashing for seemingly no reason. Sometimes I feel fine in the morning, only to try and go for a walk in the afternoon and not make it down the block.
Has anyone else experienced such ups and downs? I'm assuming this will all go away once I get back on the levothyroxine, but I'm curious to see if this is typical symptoms of Hashi's.
