Ive recently been dx with Hashimotos. It was a surprise to me, I never even heard of it and the symptoms i was experiencing I often blamed on the aging process. I still feel as if Im in denial and sometmes very grateful that my doctor picted up on it because after reading many entrys on here it is hard to get a doctor to listen. With the exception of my antibodies all my levels were well with in normal limits. I question if the dx was premature. Ive been taking a low dose of synthroid and have not felt any difference but my TSH has dropped to the lower end of the spectrum.Am I missing something? is this disease active sometimes and not at others? If my TSH levels are at 1.0 would I not notice any progression? can someone tell me what I should expect when this is active???
