Thumbs up Re: Hashimoto's Disease, Hypothyroid, Fibromyalgia... Fatigue + Hyperactivity?

I have just been diagnosed with Autoimmune Thyroiditus (Hashimoto's) and had previously been on 18 mg. of Concerta for my ADD. A couple of Summers ago, I decided to limit my gluten intake, despite the fact that I am not Celiac and there was no 'real' medical reason for doing so. I found out, within very short order, that my ADD symptoms lessened to the point where I would actually get headaches if I took my Concerta. I took myself off of the Concerta and continued on with a (somewhat) low-gluten diet and have see a difference. Now I'm learning that I have Hashimoto's Disease, and I've read that a low-gluten diet can lessen the symptoms. I'm wondering now if I even had ADD or if I (and my Doctor) were mistaking the symptoms of ADD with those of Hashimoto's Disease. I think that it's definitely worth getting checked out.....until then, try cutting all gluten out of your diet for a while (not as hard as it seems!) If you start getting headaches from your ADD meds, ask your MD about not taking them for a while. I think there's something to it!

It's hard to say whether ADHD is a disease in of itself, or a common list of symptoms that are caused by several different deficiencies. It's not much of a stretch to suggest that some ADHD can be cured by diet, while other forms can be cured by lifestyle changes, while other forms can be treated with whatever... you get the idea. It's definitely worth trying an elimination diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. In my case, a full year of gluten free and dairy free changed nothing. As they say, YMMV.
My current thought, considering that tyrosine is produced from casein and my body has a strong antibody reaction to casein, is that perhaps a simple tyrosine supplement while cutting out the dairy/cheese again might make a difference. Anything is worth trying once, but I won't hold my breath with my latest theory either.

Re: Hashimoto's Disease, Hypothyroid, Fibromyalgia... Fatigue + Hyperactivity?

Your symptoms are all accurate for someone who has hypothyroidism. Fibro, well can be mistaken for fatigue. You have to see a doctor and have him help you what to do to release your worries.

I suffered for several yrs. with the thyroid disease before I had the insurance to see a Dr. and then and most importantly one who would listen to what I had to say. (this was a challenge in itself.)
I finally lucked out and these doctors listened as I told theml," The tips of my toes to the very ends of the hairs on top of my head are messed up." The day is not long enough to tell you about my skin, eyes watering constantly, fatigue unlike anything I have ever experienced, I cannot think-focus -rememeber." Gained 30 lbs. !!!
So labs came back and the doc called and put me on synthroid. They have come to tell me they are not sure how my heart knew it should beat, as my TSH levels were so high.
I did notice a huge change, but it did not happen overnight.
I must add, I was in school training for a business, computer, Human Resource Specialist type job after many yrs. of working many jobs, none of which even closely resembled the job I was about accept. (and for those of you who KNOW, feel free to laugh)
I have a great position, lots of people to deal with daily.Constant distraction, phone ringing, emails applicants, bosses.
Requires attention to detail, ORGANIZATION, everchanging TO Do Listl, focus, ability to prioritize, maintain, create files......and on and on.
So for 3 yrs. I worried, hid my stacks, tried not to cry when the boss would come out with PAYROLL Errors and say, once again... Linda, Attention to Detail and I figured IT out, finally, I WAS STUPID! I had many jobs and certainly had many experiences but NEVER had I felt so inept, and maybe even insane?
On the other side the boss would come through and say something off the wall and I would crack everyone up and come up with some quick retort. He was confused, yeah and I was freakin'.
I mean I work very hard (harder than most to accomplish the same tasks) and do the essentials and interact well with employees and the public, but still was wondering.
As things go in this life, new boss enters the workplace, is with us about 4 mos. when she bravely asked me if anyone has ever I might be ADHD? She opened a book to a page with a Stand Out Header and a list of questions that one might ask themselves in order to decide if moving further ahead is in order.
I will never forget that moment, it seemed as tho she held a copy of a page in MY Auto biography. I came home with the book and KNEW I Finally had THE anwser. Life Changing. My tests and discussions with my ADHD Doc. suggest I am and have been off the charts in so many of the components of this disorder. So many anwsers for so many questions that plagued me.
So even with the meds. coaching etc. etc. all is not well, but sure in the heck is a lot better.
Hope this will be of some help to you and of course I hope I did not lose you with my on and on details!!! Good luck. Get Help Bye
Now take meds, am seeing my Dr. for life coaching and



Sadly, psychiatrists invariably fail to order any blood work at all in the process rendering a diagnosis.

Many times, a patient may simply have a thyroid problem that is the root cause of some psychopathology, perhaps anxiety disorder, perhaps something else.

Sometimes we must advocate for ourselves

Re: Hashimoto's Disease, Hypothyroid, Fibromyalgia... Fatigue + Hyperactivity?

being fatigued for any reason, autoimmune or just plain lack of sleep can result in some of the same symptoms as demonstrated by ADD.
