Hi everybody just thought I would give some hope to people who are suffering from Hashi's. I was put on thyroxine a few years ago because of high antibodies and sent to an endo. He told me to stop thyroxine I had no need to be on them just because of having antibodies even though 5 years prior had a high TSH but was not given anything as it was classed as borderline and it was 8.7 but no antibodies were tested at that time. So stopped and a few months later had gone hypo again so docs just put me back on it and told them I did not want to see endo has had been treated appalingly before. 6 months ago I stopped thyroxine as thyroid just seemed to go crazy after stopping steroids suddenly after being on them for 3 months (which I should never have been told to do as they need tappering) a scan has showed left side is shrunken and lace like so proof these antibodies are damaging thyroid! anyway my GP would not put me back on them due to normal TSH so I have resorted to paying to see an endo which I can't afford and have had to get into debt for but I need my health back. Saw a Dr B who had been recommended on here and I am happy to report she has prescribed me thyroxine and was even talking about maybe down the line adding T3 which I have never had so I didn't even ask her about this!
