Hi all. Was diagnosed with Hashimoto's about a month ago. I was hyper for about a month and a half, then went hypo. Blood tests, uptake scan and ultrasound were all done, doc decided on Hashimoto's. I lost weight while hyper, have since gained it all back. I have been tired throughout this whole ordeal, but some days I am wired and other days I'm not. The past week or so I have noticed an increase in my heartrate. It's around 90 in the afternoons and while I am working, in the mornings it is around 80. I am wondering if I am going hyper, or slighly hyper again. I really don't understand this disease at all. Doctor said I shouldn't go hyper again and she thinks that I will either be normal or semi hypo for awhile and then be hypo forever in the future. In the meantime what the hell is going on? I feel like a yo-yo most of the time. When my last blood test came back slighly hypo I tried Synthroid for a week and I couldn't take it, gave me panic attacks and horrible headaches, so doc took me off and I am now just waiting for my next blood test which is in about 3 weeks. Can my increased heartrate be a sign of hyper? Help! And any advice with how to live with this would be great too. I am taking a handful of vitamins daily, I am eating a gluten free diet, and will start exercise again soon. I just feel like I am doing what I can at the moment to feel better and it really doesn't seem to be helping that much.
