- I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?

- Will my short-term memory loss, caused by levaquin, every go away?
I wonder if the clinic that gave me the Levaquin purposely harmed me. I have many drug allergies, and I wasn't given the drug sheet that shows that Lavaquin has a Black Box warning. They refused to give me an antibiotic I knew I could safely take. I'm being "haunted" by P.I.s.
