Anyone here had any experience of this? I think I have it and it seems to flare up when I'm feeling paritcularly hypothyroidy and my medication probably needs increased.
Also, I've been trying to get my medication right for like two years now and whenever it seems to level out (even though all my symptoms are not gone) it only lasts for a while then over the course of a few months my TSH will start to climb again. My doctor said something last time that suggested this might be indicative of Hashimotos but I haven't had my thyroid antibodies tested. Is this something I should ask for at my next appointment?
I have read a little about Lichen Sclerosus and it's described as autoimmune and there seems to be a suggested link with autoimune thyroiditis (Hashimotos). This is alos making my think I've probably got Hashi's.
Am i way off base here? Is the treatment any different for Hashi's? Am I more likely to see an endocrinologist if it is Hashi's?
