Has anyone ever found that chronic lyme can cause HYPERthroidism? I thought my thryroid levels would come back as hypothyroid since I can't seem to lose weight no matter how much I diet and exercise but instead they came back elevated. Is this just another lyme side effect?
I have lyme's and hyper thyroid. I don't know why but it seems very rare. I have lost a lot of weight. it also seems like that hashie moto or however you spell it? my doctors don't seem to care or even really give a rats ***. I used to be 5'6'' 220 lbs working out quite a bit , quite a few supplements but now having suffered through pancreatitus,diverticulitus,and lots of aching joints im now skinny fat. ha ha, I crave a lot of ice cream . I believe its something to do with calcium. so let me now if anything comes up and stay strong. sincerely Christopher R.
