Hello everybody. My name is Aimee. I am 40 years old and was diagnosed with Hashimoto's almost 1 year ago now. I have been unable in the interim to treat with any sort of medication due to the fact that I respond so sensitively to all supplements and medications. I also have a MTHFR mutation. I don't remember exactly which one at the moment but I could post if necessary. I find that levothyroxine and liothyronine cause me to have hot flashes and bad insomnia. I also get some shortness of breath when trying Leah thyronine on its own as well as dry and painful eyes. With ashwagandha selenium Etc I also feel some amount of anxiety and hotness. I've been told that I also have adrenal fatigue but all of the things I'm trying to do to help it heal or not helping much. I had iron infusions last year and my last ferritin check my level was at 100. My vitamin D is good as I have been supplementing. Does anyone know what the problem is and whether I really need to be on medication? While on cytomel, I experienced an improvement in my energy and mood. However my temperature seems to run a little high. Plus there's the issue of having a bit of shortness of breath. And a little bit of confusion and forgetfulness. I would love to know exactly what I'm supposed to be doing and what approach to use to help myself feel better I was told for years that it was all in my head. As a side note I also suffer from complex PTSD and one day I would also like to get tested for Lyme disease as I was bitten by two ticks during a camping trip in Eastern Washington. Does anyone know the possibility of lyme being a driving factor for autoimmune?
