It is precisely descriptions like the ones you presented below that point very me anyway...of something very wrong that has nothing to do with psychiatry or hormones. Hashimotos doesn't just happen. I guess doctors are too busy and overwhelmed to really dig deep and put the detective hats on.

I'm not at all saying you have lyme, so don't get me wrong. What I am saying is, if you interviewed 100 people who have had it real bad, almost all of them would have stories and descriptions nearly word-for-word exactly like the ones you wrote. Viruses and fungi can look identical as well. Hashimotos and a prior yeast infection that required diflucan tell me the immune system is confused and erratic. Depression according to my doctor is often times a result of an immune system in disarray, not anything to do with serotonin or dopamine or whatever. With chronic infections, it is the norm. He gets better depression results with antibiotics than with antidepressants. Go figure. I guess it will vary wildly depending on how well versed a particular doctor is on the big picture.

> I have Hashimotos so my thyroid and function are tested every 6 months. I take Synthroid and Cytomel.
> I am so tired all the time and my body aches like I have the flu. I just want to sleep, but when I go to lay down, my mind races and I can't relax.
> And there is weight gain that I cannot lose. My BMI is obese right now and a few months ago it was on the low end of normal.
> I feel like something is really wrong with me but not mental ... physical.
