Hi All. I'm new here but am wondering if anyone has had this experience. I was diagnosed with Graves in 1997 after the birth of my first daughter and was put on blockers for about 12-18mths. This put me in remission and for a few years after I needed to replace with Thyroxine although stopped after 5 yrs because I didn't need it anymore. I had two more kids after this and no recurrence even though the specialist warned me this was a risk time with changes in hormones. About 4 years ago I became hypothyroid and was again prescribed thyroxine. All was stable until 5 months ago when my TSH levels dropped almost to zero. My GP has reduced my medication about 4 times since then and still my TSH levels are almost zero. I am, I guess, at that stage in life when hormone levels are beginning to change due to menopause. So, my question is, has anyone had a similar experience? And what was the outcome - fluctuating TSH due to menopause or maybe due to recurrence of graves or something else? Your help is appreciated.
