I have another question regarding Hashimoto's. I know that it can make you intolerant to cold, but can it also affect your blood pressure? I've often asked at the doc's office if I'm near death because mine is always so low (90/60 or thereabout). Anyone else have this? I know it's better to be low than high, but sometimes I think it's way too low.
I had trouble with my blood pressure for 3 months before my TT. I was never diagnosed with Hashi's - just a multinodular goiter. When I felt my worst ; my blood pressure was always 85/60 or 90/60. Along with the low blood pressure I had lightheadedness and tingling all over my body which also included an off balance feeling. You're not alone!
Hang in there ~ as you get the treatment you need things will get better. My blood pressure now is always 110/80 to 112/80.
