In 2006 I had an over active thyroid which I had treatment for for about 3 months. I had gained 2 stone in weight (one of the small percentage of people who gain rather than lose with hyper) and was so trembly I couldn't write. I thought I was going through the menopause as was always burning up. It was an osteopath who told me to go for a blood test back then because my reflexes were too sensitive. Once I received treatment the weight fell off and I quickly went back to normal. After 3 months or so I didn't need anymore treatment and that was it until 10 years later I am diagnosed with hypo and hashimoto.
Now I've read so much around hashimoto and realise now that this episode of hyperthyroidism was very likely the first sign I have thyroid antibodies. I wonder why the doctor then didn't test for it. I had no idea that it would lead to where I am now.
First day of gluten free diet today and also have appointment tomorrow to test vitamin B12
