I presented to my GP nearly 3 years ago with hypo symptoms and like many sufferers my tsh t3 and t4 were just within normal range. I had confirmed raised TPO anti-bodies but the consultant wanted to wait bfore strting any drug therapy. Not sure what for but there you go! After about 6 months of waiting I suddenly became hyper and was rushed to hospital with chest pain and fast heart rate. My t4 was 50! I was given a diagnosis of Graves disease and commenced block and replace therapy. For 18 months I took the drugs but my t4 and t3 never stabilised. The therapy was stopped in June wereupon my results plummeted. The consultant said that in fact I had Hashimotos Disease and it is common for there to be a hyper episode when this disease first presents! I am now taking Eltroxin. I have a strong family history of this disease. I feel quite angry that I spent 18 months in a living hell on the wrong therapy.
What I am wondering is why I'm still not feeling any better. I understand that it can take a long time to be completely well but surely I should feel some relief by now? Any thoughts??
