Hi everyone! In regards to Hashimotos, I feel like I am continuing to have random (for lack of a better word) "flares", where I am experiencing extreme fatigue and joint pain. My levels have been checked and they are all within range. Is it to be expected to continue to have flares even though your levels are fine?

      I have flares from time to time and they’re horrible. I have two AI disorders and stress can really cause havoc. Like the poster above said, they can happen when you’ve planned out your activities and have taken all the precautions. 🤗 ❤️

      Any stress can trigger them unfortunately. It has taken me years to learn the hard way to pace myself and plan/schedule ahead in order to make sure I give least risk of flaring… yet it can still occur even with careful planning. Living with more than just hypothyroidism also makes it difficult in knowing what is causing the flare. It can be any condition you have that flares and causes those symptoms (pain etc..) or can progress into those symptoms. We also have to pay attention in case it is something completely new. I ignored my gallbladder pain because I suffer all the time and due to having experienced medical PTSD I figured they would just tell me it was my fibromyalgia and there was nothing they could do anyhow. Long story short… the pain got so bad and I finally went to the doctor. They immediately admitted me and my gallbladder was removed. Unfortunately it can be a guessing game for those of us with multiple conditions. Sending you love 💜 and spoons 🥄

      I’ve found that flares are normal (not normal but you know what I mean). I have my up and down days but it seems your thyroid controls so much even if I take my meds later than usual I notice I’ll have a flare just from that.
