I was initially diagnosed with M.E. (symptoms similar to Hashimotos) in 2008. Then in an operation in 2012 to remove a cyst on my throat they removed half my thyroid on discovering clinical signs of Hashimotos auto immune condition. The results showed the remaining half also had signs of it. Since then they blood test me once a year and tell me I don't need medication as my results are within normal range. I have full blown symptoms of Hashimotos. Including weight gain, I am wheelchair bound and now been diagnosed as having grade b abrasions in my stomach folds caused by stomach acid. Im wondering if the hashimotos could be causing the acid erision and what can i do to get medication to help the hashimotos? Especially as now I have been told to lose weight to help prevent the stomach issues worsening

Do you have a copy of your blood test results? If so, post them on here, with the ranges, and let's have a look.
Normal range! That normal range is for the whole population but the range is different in Germany and the USA. Not everyone fits within the 'normal' range. I'd go back and ask for a consultation with someone else.
Essential to get TSH, FT4 and FT3, plus thyroid antibodies tested and vitamin D, folate, ferritin and B12
If you can't get full thyroid and vitamin testing from GP
Medichecks Thyroid plus ultra vitamin or Blue Horizon Thyroid plus eleven are the most popular choice. DIY finger prick test or option to pay extra for private blood draw. Both companies often have money off offers.
All thyroid tests should be done as early as possible in morning and fasting. This gives highest TSH and most consistent results
