Re: Hashimotos - what is this?!

I am so glad to have an answer that fits. I was so afraid they were going to treat me for hyper and that I would be even more exhausted! Thanks for all your help!

Gosh, the thought of my immune system actually destroying my thyroid sounds scary. I didn't think they would let that happen, but I don't really have any experience with this whatsoever. I hope they give me meds or something to alleviate my hypo symptoms in the meantime. I can't take much more of this, especially these "episodes" that are really freaking me out. They're waiting on the rest of the results from the bloodwork before they'll discuss with me what they're going to do, if anything. This is only the first test to come back. Once they get all of the results, I'll request a copy.

It's good to have an answer, I guess, so at least I know why this is all happening to me and it's not all in my head. I'm not crazy!
