How do you manage your hypothyroidism? What symptoms have you experienced with this disease?
I was diagnosed with it about 5 years ago. I had some signs of major fatigue, brittle hair, weight gain and carpal tunnel. I have since gone back to my old self through help of medication.
I was diagnosed around 2005-6 and it was technically "Hashimoto disease." I had dizzy spells, fatigue, mood swings (mostly happy and ANGRY), weight gain, memory issues, and a few other things. I was prescribed Cynthroid and have been on it ever since. In my experience it has helped to stabilize things and make it managable, but I can't sit aroud either. Just to maintain my weight or lose just a couple pounds I have to work out as much as someone who is working to lose a LOT of weight. My moods are more stable, but that may also be some of the other meds I'm on for just that purpose (PTSD).

Just wondering what, if any, effects anyone may have felt after stopping lithium. I now have hypothyroidism that isn't going away, and I've accepted that... but I'm less able to control my emotions than I was before I started taking Lithium. I never used to be so temperamental, I never had...
