Hi there, my name is Heather and I'm 29. I was diagnosed with hashimotos 7 years ago. Things just seem to be getting worse and worse... I'm really struggling.
I think I'm experiencing a flare up?
I will try to be brief and i hope this makes sense (brain fog argh) but my symptoms seem to subside in extremity for a couple months and then one day I'll feel like I'm hit by a truck. I get severe terrible fatigue, brain fog, slight nausea, depression, anxiety, aching tired muscles, pale skin, dry hair, etc, etc.
During these flares I find life incredibly hard. I have a 2 year old and my energy is at almost zero.
I used to get months between flare ups but now I only get weeks.
My question is, does anyone else experience these flare ups? Where you feel ok (ish) for a while and then have a few weeks of feeling bad again?
Any reassurance and support would be hugely appreciated. Thank you SO much.
