I was diagnosed with overactive thyroid in 1990, after a hectic time had Radio-active Iodine in 1993 and 2 months later I was underactive.
I know there is nothing special about this, but over the years my Levo was increased as expected until 9 years ago and then my GP started to reduce, TSH was increasing, but then I started to get gut problems, I started getting skins conditions, I got treated for Eczema in my ears and told I had Celiac, then in 2013 had gallbladder removed.
Now here is my question...
Could I have Hashimotos?
I seem to be in a cycle of immune issues, I got told by my Endo that I could have HAD Hashi's or Graves before RAI, but as I no longer have a thyroid I would not. To me that does not equate, as regardless of radio-active treatment, auto-immune would not just stop, Surely it would be in my interest to check?
Please advise me, I am battling with this and sometimes I loose all my oomph, and then depressed, to start the cycle again.
