daughter TSH 827-mother Hashimotos but not hypothyriod
This fall we found out that our daughter has Hashimotos and hypothyroidism. She is only 10 years old. The poor thing was so sick this summer and has had many,many symptoms that finally all clicked for me when I asked my pediatrician to test her thyroid. My husband has Hashi's and is hypo. When the results came back they were SHOCKED because her TSH was 827. After months of headaches and still feeling horrible(actually went hyper because of the high dose of synthroid) she is feeling better and levels are improving. She has and is having major emotional ups and downs. It's taken a lot out on her physically and now I can see emotionally. Can anyone relate to this? Any suggestions?
Also, it turns out that I recently had elevated levels of the thyroid antibodies -after finding out that my daughter has Hashimotos and hypo my endocrinologist diagnosed me with Hashimotos but I am not hypo yet-TSH was normal. These are some of the symptoms I have:
hair loss, carpal tunnel in wrists, difficulty swallowing(flare ups), gastro issues- this summer had H-pylori infection, bloated feeling, weight gain(not significant), irritability-not myself
Dr. tested me for other associated disorders that people with Hashimotos can have and it all came back normal.
Are there any people out there with Hashimotos who are not hypo? Does anyone have any of these same issues.
Thanks so much..this is my first time doing anything like this and I hope to find some answers or just someone who can relate....
