Hi, after 20 years or so battling with my thyroid and doctors to do more tests and give me proper treatment, I found out yesterday that I tested positive for antibodies back in December! The doctor only told me this because I insisted on more tests yesterday and I couldn't remember if I had the antibody test done so I asked for it again, then she found my results on the computer and told me I tested positive. I asked her "does that mean I've got Hashimoto's" and she said "um, er, well, possibly"! Possibly?! Someone please confirm that this means I have Hashi's? I have ALL the symptoms even down to the hump on my neck! I feel like crap and the NDT isn't working for me. I've asked them to check my cortisol via 24 saliva test and they said they don't do that and they could do a cortisol stress test or something like that, any ideas what that is or if it'll help? I'm convinced my adrenals are buggered as I feel like a zombie every day and wake up at night with my mind racing and not tired. Thanks in advance.
