Is it possible for hypothyroidism from hashimoto's to correct itself? I have had normal TSH levels for several months. My doctor says it's possible.

In brief: Likely, yes at first

This is an autoimmune issue and can coexist iwth other autiimmune diseases, like sjorgen's syndrome, and pernicious anemia.
If it is controlled, the hypothyroidism and TSH can be controlled. Tsh can even rise, but ultimately, if it is not controlled, or if it goes on long enough, the thyroid fails, and levothyroxine is needed.
