I had blood tests taken a week ago and the results show a TSH level of 2.4 and I am told normal and no further action.
Liver function fine, cholesterol OK.
My blood pressure when taken by the nurse was fine but today my doctor says I have to go back as it was high????
There is a long family history of hashimoto's and I asked for my antibodies to be tested to be told they don't do that.
Weight gain that I cannot lose; sweats; tiredness; brittle hair; aching joints; general feeling like life is a brick wall out to hit me.....
I had surgery for a broken neck and have an internal self locked cage around C5/6/7 entry point for surgery front right of neck with nerve damage and problems swallowing; I had a fall and landed on my head with resultant brain injury which is still causing problems; I have gastro oesophageal reflux and bronchiectasis suffering bouts of aspirational pneumonia.
I have moved area and my GP does not seem to take any of my conditions with any degree of seriousness and will not refer me to local chest specialist or neurophsychologists so I have little faith in anything they do. I am in process of changing doctors!
Any ideas? is 2.4 a figure I need not worry about and not push to be taken further?
Sorry to have to ask but been going in circles for a long time now and whilst I do not want any further conditions I would like to start feeling better.
Going round in circles and want to find a dark corner to cry .... which I cant do due to brain injury!
