Hi, new here
I'm finding the posts very interesting. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's spring 2016. It started almost immediately after finishing radiation treatment for breast cancer.
I've read a lot, and realize the radiation was probably the trigger. Or even the hormones involved in the cancer. Many books/articles talk about TSH, synthroid, etc etc. I watched a series of videos with doctors who talked about leaky gut, but it's hard to tell if that's real.
This morning I read the thread "New here help with thyroid results please" which I found very interesting! I haven't had vitamin tests, except vitamin D by my endocrinologist. It was very low and I'm now taking 2000iu/day.
I have a very good, attentive endocrinologist. But I've had continuing symptoms since the beginning...
nails are a mess. They started out splitting (my one thumbnail has been split for 18 months) and now they're starting to split the other way (peeling).
tired & sore muscles, primarily legs, especially after walking up stairs
hot flashes (can't tell what exactly is causing them. Should be in menopause, although bloodwork says no)
2000iu vitamin D
Last blood work was in May. I'm overdue:
I've included a photo showing the history of my TSH.
Any insight would be most appreciated.
