I am new to PA society but was directed here from thyroid UK due to the results of a recent private blood test. I've been having symptoms for the past 15 years of fatigue, waking up with hangover feeling, weight gain/loss, tinnitus, shortness of breath, palpitations, rapid heart rate while resting, feeling wired, cagey, depression, anxiety and more recently a quite drastic loss in my short term memory, brain fog, mixing up words and difficulty with thinking or concentrating. My bowel movements are also switching from one extreme to the other. I just feel ill.
I am a 30 year old male and have immediate family history of thyroid disease (both mum, dad, two sisters- both sisters recently diagnosed with hasimotos).
I was referred to see endocrinologist in Oct 2016 which found thyroid normal (can't find letter with results) and subsequent visit found b12 at 333 ng/l (190-984) and folate at 12.8ug/l (3.89-26.8). Met adrenaline was raised but not enough to cause concern. No result given from 48hr urine test.
I ordered a private in Feb 2016 which came back as
Tsh. 1.84 0.27-4.20
Free Thyroxine 17.36 12.00-22.00
T4. 120.0 59.00-154.00
T3. 5.11 3.20 - 6.80
Thyroid Peroxide Antibodies
Vitamin b12. 155.00 140-724.00
Folate serum 4.26 3.89-26.8
CRP high sensitivity 0.5 0.00-5.00
Ferritin iron 115.3 30.00-400.00
I've been to see my GP today who has basically shrugged the results off and said the raised thyroid antibodies are nothing to worry about and my b12 is within normal range. He also said b12 was nothing to worry about as all it cause is fatigue. He has ordered more blood tests after I basically had to beg him but he said if these come back as normal we should park thyroid and b12 and focus on a mood disorder due to my deoression/ anxiety.
I feel lost and feel like giving up, I've been back and forth to gp for past 1t hears but made to feel like it's all in my head and I'm a hypochondriac. What do you guys feel on my results and where should I turn to next?
Many thanks in advance!!
