Hypothyroidism/hashimotos, endometriosis/liver lesions high ast/alt

Posted by Michellecrcrn @michellecrcrn, Jun 2, 2016

ive had hysterectomy for severe endometriosis. Hypothyroid for 20 years. Dxd with hashimotos. Elevated alt and ast. stopped estrogen injections, stopped antidepressants, eat healthy, don’t drink alcohol, I have two liver lesions. Right renal cyst, a symptomatic of hematuria in urine, no gallbladder (removed in 2013) still have upper right quadrant dull aches and back), feeling of fatigue, get “flares” of fatigue, headache, weakness, anxiety, right eye twitches, tendon pains/ligaments. Tested for lymes, Ana’s, sjogrens, R.A, lupus, all negative. All vitamins in range except vitamin d little low. I’m wanting to know what other tests that I should have, or a special dr to see? Rheumatologist didn’t seem too concerned and really didn’t get answers, other than try exercise. I would exercise if I didn’t have fatigue and dull upper quadrant pains??? Help!

@Michellecrcm I have a friend with Hashimotos and her diet is very,
very strict. Have you been educated on that? ladyjane85

This is my first time here. I have Hashimotos along with Sjogrens, Fibro, and others, but I’ve never been educated on any diet. I would love to learn more about that strict diet for Hashimotos. Thanks.


I’ve had years of fatigue and dull pain that led to testing you talk about. I ultimately landed at an endocrinologist at Mayo in Rochester (thyroid/cholesterol and stain problems) who recognized possible fibromyalgia characteristics. He ruled out so much then I had a consult with the team that specializes in fibro. I live 7 hours away and I know it was worth the trip for me there. They are efficient and thorough if you are willing. Maybe contacting them could narrow down some of your questions or concerns you could bring to your doc?

Hello, You both need to be tested for Angioimmunioblastic T-Cell Lymphoma (Rare), as I read your earlier post and now this one I’d ask to be tested for it. It’s common in children and she has a lot of the same symptons {good cure rate in children} For adults it depends on age and other health issues of patient but you have a lot of same symptons and it can cause swelling in liver or spleen or both. Now I was told it’s painless but I’ve had major pain with mine. It took 2 years to get my diagnosis and by then it is stage 4, Malignant, ect….I looked it up and talked to Lymphoma Society and it’s not uncommon for a long time to get a diagnosis, and by then most patients are 3rd or 4th stage Cancer.
