Am I totally off base?

From: Emqtee - 3 years 5 weeks ago

I am new to this forum and have hashimotos. I was switched to nature-throid in February and haven't felt great since.

I went to my follow up yesterday and the doctor told me that since my basal temp have been in the normal range that it wasn't my thyroid and I was depressed.

I would tell you my lab results but none have been done in over a year. My basal temp range was from 97.7-98.0 this last month.

Now I guess if he asked me about what was going on in my life and such and actually took time to talk to me as a person. Not just asking basing it on basal temp. . . I may consider that possibility.

The symptoms I am having: trouble with sleep/ aching in hands and feet, headaches, fatigue. It is weird because I feel almost hyper and hypo at the same time.

Has any one else experienced this? Or am I depressed and just don't know it? I take a half grain of Nature throid twice a day. I was previously on 150 mcg of synthroid.

Thanks for the insight

Is this good advice?

For me stopping and switching thyroid meds caused my levels to be unstable and symptoms are all over the place for months. I believe the goal is to stabilize your numbers in the normal range with periodic blood work to monitor it.
