Following double lung pneumonia with sepsis, was diagnose HASHI's, hypo. Have more than 10 nodules, several over 1.7 cms. Synthroid helped tremendously with fatigue, cold hands/legs, tingling down upper thighs, however choking at night will wake me from sleep. Flare ups bring on sweating, cold hands/feet, brain fog. Adjust my meds and wait till it happens again, repeat. Wouldn't it be better to get a thyroidectomy to put antibodies into remission? Found this article that echoes my thinking. Such conflicting info out there, I'm so confused. I'm 62, never had symptoms. All this started following foot surgery in Dec 015, then double lung pneumonia with sepsis (thought I had a bad cold :( In Jan Dr noticed swelling in my thyroid area in Feb tests confirmed HASHI's and hypo. Thoughts, anyone? Live in Delaware - ENDO care not the best.
