I had postpartum thyroiditis with my first child and it presented again with second child at 7 months postpartum. I am dealing with anxiety, higher than normal heart rate, fatigue and trouble sleeping. During previous PPT, I could not tolerate medicines and it resolved when my child was 13 months old. Is it normal to cycle back and forth between hyper and hypo cycles, numerous times with postpartum thyroiditis? Is it fine to not treat it since it is cycling back and forth? If it should be treated what would be the proper treatment since the levels fluctuate so rapidly? My three months consecutive TSH levels are 2.85, 7.00 and 4.4 respectively. Also, TPoAb 96 (high) and TSI 53, within normal limits. My current medications include prenatal vitamin - still nursing, Probiotic, Vitamin D and Moducare.

Thank you doctor,
I am not currently taking anything. When I tried Synthroid after my first child during PPT and it made the hyperswings unbearable. So, should I just ride it out like last time without treatment?
