I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism almost 15 years ago when I was 20. My family doctor put me on synthyroid and that seemed to help a ton but then I got married a couple years later and during my 1st pregnancy they doubled my dose and I stayed on the medication up until my 2nd pregnancy 2 years later. For whatever the reason during that pregnancy they had me stop taking the thyroid meds cause they said my labs all came back normal. I didn’t feel like I was back to my normal self but I didn’t argue with them about it and just figured my body would adjust back to normal eventually since there was no more thyroid issue. Well now it’s been 9 years and a third pregnancy (5 years ago) and I still feel like crap everyday. It’s gotten so bad that I now feel depressed and none of the symptoms from the hypothyroidism have gone away. If anything they have gotten worse. When I ask my family dr he just acts like there’s no connection between the thyroid condition I “used” to have and my current symptoms of fatigue, insomnia, joint pain, abnormal sweating (just in the right arm pit) and confusion/memory problems that get worse every year it seems. I’m curious if anyone has ever heard of pregnancy curing hypothyroidism or if it just goes away over time. From what I understand it doesn’t just cure itself but my dr seems to think it does.
