Hi again everyone,
My last blood tests 2 weeks ago indicated a hashis flare up and now temporarily hyper. I have stopped my meds as directed by my private endo and retesting bloods & hormones again in 3 weeks time. My cortisol results were all ok except for morning cortisol which was too high and so is now being worked on.
This flare has coincided with me feeling super poorly... headaches, General unwellness, fatigue, zero energy and really bad insomnia. I’m having to rest and get lots of help at home. I’m sure this is because of the hyper symptone but my question is, has anyone else experienced such poorliness when a flare occurs? When does it calm down?
As I said I’m seeing a private endo now and am gluten free, dairy free;
Following the AIP diet (1 week now) and am taking all recommended vitamins. Blood retest in 3 weeks and then will gauge meds etc from there and get tsh down to below 1 or wherever it needs to be to feel well.
Just need a bit of reassurance that others feel rough when flares occur and that these intensification of symptoms will pass soon....felt like I was getting somewhere with it all and then things got a whole lot worse all of a sudden!
On a separate note on speaking to
My gp this morning and showing him my medichecks results, I told him how if my antibodies and t3 had never been tested I would simply just seem to be overmedicated. He has now agreed to always test my t3 and antibodies in all future blood tests. (Despite how poorly I feel, there is a hooray here!) x
