Sorry for the graphic details but I want others to know my symptoms
October 2010, I had had enough and went to Mayo
Clinic for 2nd opinion. Saw board certified endo doc, and was indeed diagnosed with hypothyroid, or Hashimoto's. He put me on high dosage.....175mg. He was perplexed on why I needed such high dose at my current weight, age, etc. At that time, also had EGD of esophagus and disagnosed with corrosive espohagitis. Put me on Protonix. Fixed the GERD immediately.
