No Thyroid Anymore?
I was diagnosed Hypo 15 yrs ago. I've had some problems keeping the levels stable for the last few years. The meds would bounce from 250mcg-300mcg. About 1.5 yrs ago, my level was crazy again. They feared I had cancer at that point. MRI showed no cancer, but it also showed my body had attacked my thyroid at some point and I had nothing left. They did not tell me I had Hashi. Around the same time, I developed a horrible painful rash that the Dr. biopsied. The lab said it contained auto-immune cells, but I don't know what that means really. They told me I may never be able to get in the sun again, but I had no problem when we went to Florida. Any idea what makes your body attack the thyroid? It wasn't working well before, but it still surprised us. We did find a mass on the pituitary glad also, but the Dr. said it was benign and we left it alone.
