1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

No, Hashimoto's does not cause brain demyelinations.
Hashimoto's is an autoimmune thyroid dysfunction which will eventually cause hypothyroidism. During initial stage of Hashimoto's, thyroid function may remain normal or transiently elevated with self resolution. But in long term, most patient with Hashimoto's will develop hypothyroidism requiring thyroid hormone replacement
