I'm new so keep adding probably stupid questions...but I have another...
I am hypothyroid due to Hashimotos. Something I've determined by myself/on here rather than being advised by the doctor.
I'm on levothyroxine and am currently working toward optimum meds.
My question.... Once I get optimum treatment. If I ever do... but assuming I do. Will my symptoms go? Or will I always feel like his because it is a chronic illness and therefore levothyroxine just treats the symptom of hypo?
I've had it in my head that the fatigue and pain and total loss of control, over my life is short term, that meds will eventually get me ok. Am I an idiot? Is this a chronic illness that will have me forever in fatigue and pain?
My doctors have played it all down and I was led to believe that once my med levels are right ill have no symptoms and lose weight and be back to normal. But if it's autoimmune and a chronic illness how can that be right?
Any answers gratefully received.
