About 6 years ago my health took a steady decline. Symptoms with no obvious cause, until I discovered my antibodies were 4x over the limit.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have had all the above symptoms, plus I was diagnosed with Sibo and Hashimoto. I go through flare ups. I’m never functioning at 100%, but for maybe a week or two I can be at 80%, then I can go weeks to months fluctuating at anywhere from 25%-50%. I have chronic oral ulcers which is how I know something is not right with my immune system, however I am constantly shrugged at by drs. Only after nearly 5 years, I started to do my own research and I insisted my dr do a full thyroid panel, not just a T4. My tpo is now the highest it’s been, at 199, with a limit of 35. However since my t4 is “normal” their approach is to just wait until it finally attack’s my thyroid. Seeing as this could take years, I am far from satisfied with this approach. I am 39, but I feel almost twice my age. I just want to feel healthy again.
