I've been diagnosed with Hashimoto disease about 2 years ago and anti TPO antibodies. I've took exogenous T4 for a while and it seemed well controlled. Then I've got pregnant in November 2017, but, unfortunately I've lost the baby 2 months later (no clear cause...). About 2 months after this, my thyroid condition slowly start reversing, begging hyperthyroid (T4=1.7, normal 0.7-1.8; T3=4.5, normal 2.3-4.5 and TSH<0.01, normal 0.6-2.3). My doctor initially suspected a temporary thyroiditis and no medication was prescribed. Four months later, the labs were the same, but I've start having serious sleeping problems, feeling warm often and tired (also due to sleep depravation)... My doctor still refuses to prescribe any medication until I have a thyroid scan done. However this involved radiation and we are still trying to conceive... Radiation will not be of high risk for conception, but might actually impaired our chances of conceiving and postpone everything or even worst... I oppose strongly for this scanning, but without this, my doctor would not prescribe me the treatment I need on the base of the need of a complete investigation, although my symptoms are getting worst by day...! I've looked for natural remedies, but many of them cannot be taken as may impair ability to conceive...
I'm miserable and desperate! I do not know what to do.
Does anyone has any suggestion? Anyone went through this?
