I think the symptoms can come and go. I've been doing reading on thyroid problems recently, and I'm treating myself. We'll see if I succeed or fail and have to fill the prescription for Synthroid that I got. I've found ithyroid.com a good resource. Take a look and see if any of the stuff makes sense to you. FWIW, I've been taking lots of pills, including lots of zinc, selenium, and iodine, and am feeling a lot better--it took less than 2 weeks to notice a big change.
A few months ago when all I was doing was taking extra iodine, I noticed that when I was more relaxed, and thus eating better (more veggies, less sugar, no wheat/dairy) I felt a lot better, and then when life got more stressful and my eating habits went downhill, I felt tons worse.
