I have given up on doctors but do any of you have dizziness that goes along with hashies? I feel crummy. I just can't get regulated. Maybe menopause doesn't help. I am tired of my hair falling out and gaining weight. tired, tired, tired. I don't feel like even reading a book. Can't concentrate long but I am still working. i don't think anyone knows how I feel, I fake it pretty well. Any input from you all on the dizziness?
Or does the thyroid problem cause the menopause. I've read many times about after thyroid levels are better, menopause goes away at least for awhile. Since being hypo can goof up periods so much, it seems like maybe it brings on the menopause rather than menopause bringing on the hashis. Horse or cart. hmmmm. IWL
I have had vertigo (not dizziness - there is a difference. See http://my.webmd.com/content/healthwise/90/22367) with the Hypo/Hashi, but I wouldn't know if they are truly related. At this time, I tend to believe they are. In my case, the vertigo came on when my TSH reached a low point of 0.11, (where it is now). Once I get my TSH back the other way, I am hoping the vertigo will dissapear.
I am also considering the possibility that since I am so HyperT at this time, due to over medication, that I may be experiencing over reaction to stress.

My opinions only, not medical advice. Always follow advice of your Doctor, not what I say here.
One of the reasons I got my blood tested before I knew anything about having hypo was because I felt dizzy a lot. Either after I ate or after I was sitting for a little while. So, I got my blood tested for diabetes and found out that I didn't have it, but that I did have Hypo. I don't know if one has anything to do with the other, but dizziness was and sometimes still is something I experience. I'm 27 and am not going through menopause either. I have an appointment tomorrow and I am going to ask her about it.
Yes, dizziness is common, I have Hashi's and sometimes I am a bit dizzy daily, not all day, just for a while I'll be a bit light headed. I also get vertigo and this usually happens when my numbers are a bit off. I have also noticed that I get the dizziness more often when it is close to my cycle.
I do get light headed, but only had one episode of true dizziness. I had woken up to use the restroom...I was standing there in my bedroom and the room was litterally spinning like I was drunk...lol...I had to hold on to the walls to walk to the bathroom.
No meds, waiting for scan
