Hashimoto's Flare Up???

Has this ever happened to anyone and what can I do?

For the past 2 days I have been in the middle of a HUGE flare. Lump in throat, extreme fatigue, achy. I don't know what to do. I don't see my endo until October. My husband wants me to just go get some bloodwork from my family doctor.

In the meantime, I do things for an hour or 2 and then have to rest for a few hours. I can't live like this.

PLEASE HELP if you can!

Yes, tigger, this can happen. It could be your Hashi's flaring, or it could be a viral or other sort of thyroiditis on top of your Hashi's.

Why not calll your endo's office & explain what's going on? Most docs schedule "check-ups" a ways out, but also have openings for urgent concerns. Endos esp., as they deal a lot with diabetics who can have some crisis mode occurrences.

If your endo can't see you within a few days, or says "go to your PCP," then that's your Plan B.

Best wishes.
