Overview

This is my personal story regarding symptoms, diagnosis and treatment for autoimmune hypothyroidism caused by Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue and other metabolic-related conditions that I developed co-morbid to thyroid disease.

I also share testimony in regard to my symptom struggles including the emotional aspects and difficulty in finding a doctor experienced in treating thyroid disease with related conditions. I also include a chapter regarding my reason for becoming a Thyroid Patient Advocate and the growing importance for public education on thyroid diseases.

It is my hope that my story will inspire other patients to become proactive in obtaining quality care for their health disorders and to partner with their doctors to achieve this. I also hope this e-book will seve to inspire patients with difficult cases of thyroid disease, to achieve coping skills and a better quality-of-life.

I spent the last four years knowing I had Hashi, but I vastly undereducated on the disease. I assumed my Sythroid was my treatment and as long as I took that little pill each day, my thyroid issues were behind me.

Meanwhile I was experiencing everything from weight gain (on a healthy diet) to neuropathic pain (and of course hoarseness, shortness of breath, granulomas, vibration sensation, Raynau
