Please feel free to post your Synthroid stories on this page.
Here is mine:
My name is Josh Eaton. I have Hashimoto’s thyroid disease. It is an autoimmune disease that caused me to develop hypothyroidism. My story is simple but sad. Sad because our healthcare is in a sorry state. I was told by 2 different doctors that I did not have thyroid disease and neither doctor would test me for the disease. They both said you are not fat and your hair is not falling out. My sister in law’s sister in law is actually the one who told me “Josh you have hypothyroidism caused by Hashimotos.” I was scared but I went to a third doctor told her what I wanted and she ran the test. Yep, Josh you have positive antibodies which means you have Hashimotos and hypothyroidism. No worries we can treat it with a simple pill called Synthroid. She told me there were no side effects and I would feel great within a month. That month came and went. Started feeling worse.
