As I might have explained before, hypothroidism is a condition, not a diagnosis.  I got my diagnosis today: hashimoto's thyroiditis.

This is good news.  It's the most common cause, and it "just" means my immune system attacked my thyroid.  Realtively common, and not "serious"... it could have been a lot, lot worse.

Treatment is totally making me feel better.  Sore throat, and I still can't fully stretch my major muscles... but I'm just a completely different person.  Getting a lot of comments at work: about showing up in T-shirts instead of sweaters, about being animated, about seeming "cheery".

Good stuff.
