Definitely: A possibility. Your TSH should be towards the lower limit of normal, less than 1. While that will have to be addressed fast by your endocrinologist, ideally or the doc who diagnosed you with Hashimoto, the possibility of a concomitant different condition cannot be ruled out. Start with your PCP or the doc who checked your thyroid.
