I am wondering if anyone experienced symptoms of HypErthyroid, before being diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. Or even have a combination of Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism.

Only over a long period of years. When I was in college, I had hyperthyroidism and took PTU for several years. In my 40s, I developed hypothyroidism and am currently taking Synthroid. Never had the combination.

HI Jill,

I am new to this forum and saw your post.

Hashimoto's disease is when the anitbodies attact your thyroid and therefore you can experience both hyop and hper episodes.
Many people advocate using enough thyroid medication (T4 & T3) to suppress the thyroid to avoid the swings.
