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

No : No "side effects" or symptoms of hashimoto's are proven outside the possible thyroid enlargement and symptoms of underactive thyroid, some of which dr. Fowler has listed. Once your thyroid levels are normal on your supplement (synthroid) in your case, you should have no symptoms of the hashimotos.

I have hashimoto disease, been taking syntroid 50 mg every morn. What happens if i forget to take it for few days?

Not a whole lot.: Synthroid (thyroxine) has a long half-life so that short breaks in medication will not lower your levels a whole lot.

What do you suggest if I have hashimoto disease. Any one else with it and what do you do for it?

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. Finding the right physician to treat you is the tricky part. For more info, check https://www.facebook.com/groups/95847031171/ ...Read more

I have hashimoto disease my tsh is <.006 t3 (liothyronine) uptake and free t4 are normal my thyroglobulin ab was 1.9 but my dr said no meds till it burns itself out?

Your doctor is right: Your thyroid is withering and the pituitary is secreting a lot of TSH to kick start it. Since your free T4 is normal, there is no reason to add thyroid replacement until the thyroid ceases to produce T4. However be sure to follow up on your appointments and contact your doctor if you have symptoms pointing to low thyroid (fatigue, constipation, intolerance to cold , weight gain etc) ...Read more
