Can hashimoto’s cause dizziness?  Oh yeah Hashimoto’s can cause dizziness it is extremely common for hashimoto’s to cause dizziness and on so many levels um so okay so again hashimoto’s thyroid controls your metabolism a big part of it is uh there’s two there’s two mechanisms we’re going to talk about here we’re going to talk about the hypothyroid mechanism and the hypothyroid aspect of your mechanism is this a lot of people come in here they’re hypothyroid so they’re overweight and they can’t lose weight and they’re constipated and they get swelling in their ankles and and um and so um that’s the hypothyroid symptoms and hypothyroids also goes towards it can actually alter blood sugar mechanisms hypothyroidism despite the fact that you put on weight can actually cause low blood pressure hypothyroid can actually cause low adrenal function when you have low blood pressure of low journal function you may be the person who goes from laying down to sitting or from sitting to standing and you like get a little woozy almost want to pass out a smaller manifestation after someone whose adrenals aren’t as bad whose blood pressure isn’t as bad would be dizziness i get lightheaded and dizzy this is a tough explanation for patients patients have a tough time describing dizziness so sometimes it’s light-headedness and sometimes it’s dizzy what the one i usually cognite on more when some one comes in here and says I’ve got dizziness and it’s usually dizziness and a lot of times it’s dizziness and nauseous sometimes it’s dizziness and balance sometimes it’s actually dizziness and vertigo is that your thyroid has an interesting relationship to your cerebellum which is a part of your brain that is down here and uh yeah i can even i’m gonna i got a little i got a little brain that i have right on my desk here for patients okay so this is the brain this is the cerebellum okay down here so this guy there you go so this guy right here is your cerebellum it’s like it’s called the little brain and your thyroid has a direct relationship to this cerebellum and here’s how it works when your thyroid gets attacked there are meta by your immune system because you’ve triggered it some way there’s a direct relationship in the sense that there are metabolites in this cerebellum that look exactly like metabolites um in your in your thyroid and so it’s and this is something called molecular mimicry and so when that get when your thyroid gets attacked in a substantial portion of patients um the the cerebellum gets attacked i i have one right now and she’s just she like she can’t take five steps without being woozy because the cerebellum can cause dizziness vertigo balance stiff necks it can cause you to have anxiety but those are all different aspects of the cerebellum the part that causes dizziness and balance and wooziness and vertigo is the cerebellum has projections into your spinal cord that causes like stiffness in the neck it’ll cause stiffness in your whole back and it has project projections into your cortex it actually can cause blurred vision but it also from from controlling nerves that are around your eyes and if their nerves aren’t working right you’ll get blurred vision um and and a bunch of other things but the projection there’s another projection from that cerebellum that goes into your inner ear so what happens when you start getting dizziness or you start getting balanced or you start vertigo you start you start going to the doctor and then they go well we don’t know so they send you the to the ear nose and throat doctor and then they look in your ear and they go everything’s normal there’s no infections or anything like that you’re going like you know dude i mean like every now and then i want to puke it and and then i you know feel very good and then my balance goes off and everything’s normal i do an mri they do a cat scan everything’s normal 99 percent of time if you have hashimoto’s it’s because of the hashimoto’s it’s because when the hashimoto’s has developed you now develop this molecular mimicry to the cerebellum so you eat let’s just stay classic here you piece of gluten that is closely related was one of the first triggers that were was recognized to set off a hashimoto’s response that gluten look also gluten also has molecular mimicry by the way with the cerebellum so you eat the gluten sets off the thyroid and the cerebellum next thing you know you have all the all the thyroid symptoms and maybe you have dizziness and along with that maybe you have nausea maybe you have balance issues um and and then i mean it could even get into migraines and vertigo and it can blur vision stiff neck and all those types of things so it’s really part of a picture it doesn’t usually just cause vertigo was why i went into that explanation if it it or i’m sorry dizziness it doesn’t usually just cost specifically dizziness okay it usually is part of a constellation of symptoms and that is indicated indicating that that projection from the cerebellum into the inner ear vestibular mechanism is being affected it is common it it is i i can’t even tell you how common it is i can’t give you a virgin if i gave you a projection i would probably say 70 percent of the time if persons hashimoto’s they’re going to have some aspect to this so yeah it’s very very common to have dizziness along with uh experiencing hashimoto’s – So topic of the day is, can Hashimoto’s caused dizziness? Oh yeah.

Hashimoto’s can cause dizziness. It is extremely common for Hashimoto’s to cause dizziness and on so many levels. So, okay. So, again Hashimoto’s. Thyroid controls your metabolism. A big part of it is there’s two, there’s two mechanisms we’re gonna talk about here.

We’re gonna talk about the hypothyroid mechanism. And the hypothyroid aspect of your mechanism is this. A lot of people come in here, they’re hypothyroid, so they’re overweight. And they can’t lose weight.

And they’re constipated. And they get swelling in their ankles. And um, And so that’s the hypothyroid symptoms. And hypothyroid also goes towards it can actually alter blood sugar mechanisms. Hypothyroidism, despite the fact that you put on weight, can actually cause low blood pressure.

Hypothyroid can actually cause low adrenal function. When you have low blood pressure, you have low adrenal function, you may be the person who goes from laying down to sitting or from sitting to standing and you like get a little woozy, almost want to pass out.

A smaller manifestation now for someone whose adrenals aren’t as bad, whose blood pressure isn’t as bad, would be dizziness. I get lightheaded and dizzy. Dizzy’s a tough explanation for patients.

Patients have a tough time describing dizziness. So sometimes it’s lightheadedness. And sometimes it’s dizzy. The one, I usually cognate on more when someone comes in here and says, I’ve got dizziness.

” And it’s usually dizziness. And a lot of times it’s dizziness and nausea. Sometimes it’s dizziness and balance. Sometimes it’s actually dizziness and vertigo. Is that, your thyroid has an interesting relationship to your cerebellum, which is a part of your brain that is down here.

And I can even, I gotta, I got a little I got a little brain that I have right on my desk here for patients. Okay. So this is the brain. This is the cerebellum. Okay, down here. So this guy There you go.

So this guy right here is your cerebellum. It’s called the little brain. And your thyroid has a direct relationship to the cerebellum. And here’s how it works. When your thyroid gets attacked There are, by your immune system because you triggered it some way.

There’s a direct relationship in the sense that there are metabolites in this cerebellum that look exactly like metabolites in your thyroid. And so, and it’s something called molecular mimicry.

And so when that gets, when your thyroid gets attacked, in a substantial portion of patients, the cerebellum gets attacked. I have one right now and she just, she like, she can’t take five steps without being woozy because the cerebellum can cause dizziness, vertigo, balance, stiff necks.

It can cause you to have anxiety. But those are all different aspects of the cerebellum. The part that causes dizziness and imbalance and wooziness and vertigo is the cerebellum has projections into your spinal cord that causes like stiffness in the neck.

It’ll cause stiffness in your whole back. And it has projections into your cortex. It actually can cause blurred vision. But it also, From controlling nerves that are around your eyes. And if the nerves aren’t working right, you’ll get blurred vision and a bunch of other things.

But the projection, there’s another projection from that cerebellum that goes into your inner ear. So what happens when you start getting dizziness or you start getting imbalance or you start vertigo? You start, you start going to the doctor.

And then they go, “Well, we don’t know.” So they send you to the ear, nose, and throat doctor. And then they look in your ear And they go, “Everything is normal. There’s no infections or anything like that.

” And you’re going to like, “You know, dude. I mean, like every now and then I wanna puke. And then I don’t feel very good. And then my balance goes off and everything’s normal.” I do an MRI, they do a CAT scan everything’s normal.

99% of the time if you have Hashimoto’s, it’s because of the Hashimoto’s. It’s because when the Hashimoto’s has developed you now develop this molecular mimicry to the cerebellum. So you eat, let’s just stay classic here, You eat a piece of gluten.

That is closely related. It was one of the first triggers that was recognized to set off a Hashimoto’s response. That gluten, also gluten also has molecular mimicry, by the way, with the cerebellum.

So eat the gluten, sets off the thyroid and the cerebellum. Next thing you know, you have all the thyroid symptoms and maybe you have dizziness. And along with that, maybe you have nausea. Maybe you have balance issues.

And then, I mean, it could even get into migraines and vertigo. And it gets blurred vision, stiff neck, and all those types of things. So it’s really part of a picture. It doesn’t usually just cause vertigo was why I went into that explanation.

Or, I’m sorry, dizziness. It doesn’t usually just cause specifically dizziness, okay? It usually is part of a constellation of symptoms. And that is indicated, indicating that that projection from the cerebellum into the inner ear vestibular mechanism is being affected.

It is common. It is. I can’t even tell you how common it is. I can’t give you a, If I gave you a projection, I would probably say 70% of the time, if a person’s going to Hashimoto’s, they’re going to have some aspect of this.

So yeah, it’s very, very common to have dizziness along with experiencing Hashimoto’s.
