  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I went to a Rheumatologist and he said I have Hashimoto disease and said its not serious enough to take meds for. The test is - Thyroid Peroxidase Antiboties - my number is 363. It says that is should be <9. I was wondering if these medications I am on could be causing abnormal reading. I do have severe inflammation due to serious injuries.

    Please get treated! Go to a functional medicine doctor...those antibodies are way too high, no matter what the root cause...pick up the book Stop the Thyroid Madness, as well as The Root Cause by Isabela Wentz. Also check out Mary Shomon. There are FB Support Groups as well, including Hashimoto's 411, For Thyroid Patients Only, several others to find information and support, where we are all Hashi's sufferers. Please be your own best advocate and get to the right doctor (not an endo despite what you may have been led to believe) who will actually help you! I am a long time Hashimoto's patient, trust me!

  • From this study (10 months ago):

  • Took Cipro and Levaquin over 10 to 20 years due to severe sinus and bronchitis. I was allergic to Penicillin and physicians would prescribe these frequently. December 2011 I took Levaquin and Predisone for 8 Days. I had an adverse reaction similar to stroke. I have been disabled since due to extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, severe pain in my extremities, joints, and muscles. I can't walk for long or sit upright for 2 hours without severe weakness and tremors.
