This is going to sound like an absolutely radical question BUT has anyone with hashi's considered/asked/had their thyroid removed to stop swings?
I was first sick in 2012 and wasn't diagnosed until last year. I've only been on thyroxine since June but I've had some swings. I went hyper in November, hypo in December/Jan and now the GP is calling me this afternoon to explain that I've now went hyper again and reduce my dose. I don't have the results yet, will have them this afternoon.
The problem I have is it's really affecting my work. I work full time and have worked my ass off for the past 7 years to be in the position I'm in. I manage a team and even though I struggle each day to get out of bed I do it. I am so tired. I am so tired of being tired. I'm tired of sitting at my desk with layers on and a blanket to stay warm. I'm tired of always saying I'm tired.
I have hashi's and I understand that my immune system will always attack it until it dies and until that point my butterfly will fight back. I just don't know how much more I can take and how much more my work will take. They have been understanding but I think they are getting to the point of being fed up with me.
So, has anyone ever considered this or have had it removed because of hashi's?
Thanks all x
