Re: Good and bad days (hashimotos)
Oh yeah. The first few weeks were awful. Actually, for me, the first YEAR was awful. Since my doctor was a total idiot, I went a whole year before I was diagnosed. Then, when he finally did find his brain, he over medicated me with too high a dose of Levothroid (100mcgs) to start! Moron.
I got rid of him and went to a naturopath who started me on Naturethroid with a very low dose to start and slowly worked my way up. I am still not completely there yet, but with thyroid meds, the slow and steady is the way to do it.
I still have really crappy days, but they are getting better and I watch what I eat. No gluten and that helps. But the hyper symptoms have calmed quite a bit so the better days are stretching out and the crappy days are kinda just here and there. I can actually have a bad hour or two and then things get better. Hashi's is horrid. I don't wish it on my worst enemy.
