Anyone have a traumatic experience and then develop Hashimoto's?
I have heard that many autoimmune diseases come about after some sort of trauma to your system (i.e. being in a bad accident, surgery, pregnancy, etc). So, my question is to those of you with Hashimoto's, did you suffer a trauma before being diagnosed? I developed Hashimoto's after having surgery, but did not realize it right away. My mom developed Fibromyalgia after a bad car accident when she was younger. I know autoimmune diseases are hereditary, but we both developed ours after a traumatic experience. Interesting, eh?
