It’s pretty comon.  I have it.  I take Armour in the morning and that’s it.  Of course you are going to find horror stories on the internet.  When I had my blood clot, the internet said I was going to die.  Um, I’m still here 3 years later.  Smile

I’ve had it for 13 years. As long as I’m on the right dosage of medication I feel just as “normal” as the next person.

I also have it…I had a procedure that included a small amount of radiation. I don’t ever remember being told about concern over fertility. I take a pill every monring and continue to get my levels monitored. It really is not a grave concern. I also did not experience any symptoms at first. They found it by accident when I was in the hospital for another reason.

I have it, he must be catching it in the early stages before you start with the symptoms, as long as you take your meds and keep track of it you will be fine.

I’ve had it for years and regulate it with Synthroid.  I never really had any symptoms either.  I do notice that it is much more difficult for me to lose weight than the average person, and I can usually tell when my dosage needs to be upped because I get pretty tired. 

I asked my doctor about fertility issues and she told me that as long as we kept my levels under control with meds, there would be no problems.  And wouldn’t you know, she was right!

I’m pretty sure that I have it as well.  Especially because I do have some signs of it. Unfortunately, I have no insurance so I am unable to get it checked out and take medications. It depresses me.  I wish you the best of luck though.  You’ll be fine once you’re on medication.

Same thing happened to me, and when I went to get retested my levels were back to normal, and have been ever since. Try not to worry too much while you’re waiting to be retested, and don’t Google yourself into a panic. The internet likes to showcase the worst case scenarios.
