I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease when I was 28 years old. I feel like I have been on a roller coaster ride ever since. In 2004 I was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation and was put on medications to control it. After exhausting all medications available, I had a Pacemaker implanted in 2006 to try and alleviate the problem. I have had three Radio Frequency Ablations to try and control the rapid heart rate and each procedure has failed. I have a large goiter in my neck and I have been suffering extreme tiredness stiffness in my joints and I feel like I have been hit by a bus. There are days when I don't want to go anywhere or do anything and so I hide in my house and plod along as best I can I have no energy at times and feel frustrated as to what to do. I have blood tests and I keep getting told that my thyroid tests come back showing normal. My mother had Graves’ disease and I had an uncle who also had thyroid problems..

I was diagnosed with hypothyroid about 10 years ago; but about a year ago a new doctor that I went to discovered that I had Hashimoto’s. The previous doctor didn't test me for antibodies. I am glad that I dumped him. Demand all the thyroid tests so that you know what you are up against. I was on Armour, but when they reformulated it, it didn't work well for me anymore. In fact it was horrible. So I went on generic Synthroid which is working for me!.
