I'm being treated for hashimotos thyroiditis and hypothyroidism. This has been going on for 7 months and I'm still having symptoms. I got it after I had a baby 15 months ago. I started waking up at night with numb hands and feet. I was so tired, I struggled making it through the day. My joints were tired as were my muscles, fatigue I've never felt before. It was unbearable. I also developed carpal tunnel. I am not yet stabalized, but my levels have been normal for three months. I am still having symptoms, numbness in my hands and feet, stiffness in my toe joints in the morning, stiffness in my knees when sitting for 30 minutes or more, body aches that feel fluish. I also got vertigo and my periods have suddenly become irregular, within the last month. I also notice my heart beating (sometimes feels heavy like a heart attack, which doctors have told me can be anxiety) and have some anxiety related to the thyroid medication, but it's still happening so I wonder. This symptom is periodic. I feel a mess. I'm wondering if something else in addition to my thyroid is wrong. Could it be lead poisoning, rhumatoid arthritis, ms, lyme disease ... something simple like depression? I'm having trouble finding an answer after going to three doctors. Anyone else have similar symptoms?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
