Big picture: Cannot diagnose you in one paragraph. I would have to do a major work up. But possiblities include an infection such as lyme, toxicity of some kind including heavy metals, micronutrient deficiencies, etc. There is likely more than one thing going on. See a good endocrinologist if you have not done so yet. ...Read more

I've Hashimoto's thyroiditis and low lymphocytes for 2 years. My levels are very stable and I've never had a goiter. How can I increase lymphocytes?

I've Hashimoto's thyroiditis and low lymphocytes for 2 years. My levels are very stable and I've never had a goiter. How can I increase  lymphocytes?

Low lymphocytes may: not be related to Hashimoto's, and may not need any treatment. If the lymphocytes are less than 1000/mcL then you may want to check T and B cell subsets. HIV should be checked if the CD4 T-cell count is very low. If not, and there are no recurrent infections, there is no need for treatment. Vitamin stores are full of supplements which claim to boost the immune system, but are mostly bogus. ...Read more

Can i have high TPO >400 but not have hashimotos? I have all the symptoms of it but my tsh is normal as of right now + goiter, Tpo 1300 last week

Hashimotos diagnosis: is made by a biopsy that shows immune-mediated thyroid destruction. The presence of high TPO>200 is seen in >95% of cases of Hashimoto's. Anyone with high TPO antibody is at high risk for Hashimoto's and should be followed very closely. TSH, FT4 and FT3 levels determine thyroid function and treatment might not be needed if normal, but goiters always need further evaluation. ...Read more

My mom has all symptoms of addisons except salt cravings.  Blood work came back negative for that and hashimoto.  Any ideas?  Could it be auto Immune?

Symptoms in medicine: Hi. Here's a very well time tested and proven philosophy of medicine: there is no symptom specific to any single disease, and no disease specific to any single symptom. So when you say someone has symptoms of an incredibly rare disease (e.g., Addison's) bear in mind those same symptoms can be seen WITHOUT that disease, with some other disease, or with no identifiable disease. Good luck to your Mom ...Read more

Hashimoto thyroidism, HGH bld pressure vitamin d sufficient, excess weight gain, feel tired all the time, would amphetamine boost my energy?

Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer. ...Read more

I have hashimoto thyroidism, pituitary tumor, seizures, lesion on my brain and had multiple concussions. My calves are hurting bad what could this be?

Wow- a lot!: This can either be as simple as muscular if you have had any changes in excercise or even trauma (fall, seizure). Or it can be neurological, neuropathic pain due to your comorbidities or even the brain lesion. Or vascular such as a DVT or blood clot in your veins. I would recommend that you get evaluated at your earliest convenience. ...Read more
