Seek treatment: When your immune system attacks the thyroid, it can "rollercoaster" from HYPER to HYPO thyroid and cause severe swings in energy, mood, pain, etc. A full workup is warranted and treatment will significantly improve your quality of life.

What are some of the side affects of hashimoto disease. I have had the right side of my thyroid removed and take synthroid (thyroxine).
