It All Makes Sense Now...

Hello all, I am here to share my story with you. I am a 22 year old female and I was just diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease and hypothyroidism. I just found out in January of this year. My mom had noticed that my neck was swollen one day and had mentioned that I should go to the doctor to get it checked out. I kept putting it off until she mentioned it again and I finally decided to go. I found out that I had a goiter and had to get a blood test and an ultrasound on my neck. A couple days later I found out that I had hypothyroidism and a nodule on my thyroid. My doctor then decided to do another blood test to count my antibodies and then I got the call a few days after that about having Hashimoto's. I do not know how anyone else felt when they got the news but I felt overwhelmed. They have to keep close watch on the nodule on my neck and will be biopsying it soon. I was on 100 mcg of levothyroxine and that was too high so they put me of 75 mcg and I feel the difference! I feel like it is too low. Its like a constant tightness in my throat, I have become moody and my goiter is coming back. Back to the doctor I go!!
