At 22 after birth of my daughter i was diagnosed with graves disease and an hyperthyroidism. I had radio active iodine treatment and now I am underactive. On 0.125 levothyroxin and have been since, dosage have been changed a few times through out my journey. As I get older I have question that no one seems to listen to but my body is telling me things are going on...I have inflammation in hands, arms, feet, bowels, eyes. I struggle with sleeping, anxiety, depression. My joints hurt, my hair falling out, always need to empty drain after shower. I am wondering if even though they rid my goiter did they fix my problem or is what ever caused my goiter still reaking havoc on my body? My body yhinks yes but doctor tells me my tsh levels are fine and dimisses my questions...maybe I am crazy but I just can't swallow the answers I get...anyone out there have an answer to my question I desperately seeking? My body is sick of all the pain it's experiencing!!!
