Hello Melissa6666,

I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well.

For the benefit of all our readers, Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a condition in which the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. The resulting inflammation leads to an underactive thyroid gland. It is also referred to as Hashimoto's disease and is most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States.

Melissa, I have never heard of an "autoimmune infection". What do you mean by this?

Hashimoto's thyroiditis or Hashimoto's disease is an autoimmune disorder.

The symptoms that you describe sound very much like an response to anxiety.
