Hi all. I've been hypothyroid for 18 years and have never felt good despite my levels being "normal". Last week I got sent to the hospital because of a goitre that has been there since before xmas. The Specialist told me this was normal for someone with Hashimotos to which I replied I don't have Hashimotos I have an underactive thyroid. Apparently in 2011 I had a thyroid antibody test which came back positive but the doctors never bothered to pass this on. So I have more than likely had Hashimotos for 18 years or longer but am only just finding this out now, a bit of a shock I can tell you. Not surprisingly the specialist said that as I was taking Levothyroxine and my TSH was at 0.03 then I was doing everything that could be done and I should feel fine but would have to live with the goitre pressing on my windpipe. It's not that big but I can feel it. Anyway I've been using trusty google to try and help myself and came across this site. All suggestions as to how I can help myself feel better would be appreciated. I have cut out caffeine, gluten and soy and am taking Selenium, B vits and magnesium. Thanks in advance.
