I was diagnosed with hashimoto thyroid disease at the age of 11. I am now 27 and been diagnosed with many more problems. I have gray hair, psoriasis, and sporiatic arthritis affecting the right side of my body, just to name a few. Recently, my endocrinologist has put me on vitamin b12 injections. Once a week for the first 4 weeks then once a month. I have felt the symtoms of hashimoto thyroiditis for so many years it is hard to decide what feels normal. And although I am taking 2 differnet kinds of thyroid medicine I am still symptomatic. I am on 137MCG of levothyroxine and 5mcg twice a day of liothyronine. Even with this dosage it is hard sometimes to get out of bed, much less take care of my family. I stopped taking the b12 shots for a period of time and of course, once again, my levels dropped. Is this something I will be doing for the rest of my life? And why does my body not absorb B12 like it should?
I have been to several endocrinologists in my years and none of which seem to have any real answers. None of the Drs. that I have been to are willing to remove my nogule ridden thyroid. Why is this? Would it not be easier on my body to remove and start from scratch with the medication? Maybe you can help to shed some light on this for me...
