Hi there, just thought I'd follow up with what I have.
I was told by my doctor that I have raised thyroid autoantibodies (84 KIU/L or 84,000 MIU/L TPOab) and that my immune system is attacking my thyroid, however my TSH has come back at 1.50 and so because my TSH came back normal my T3 and T4 weren't tested. I've just come off a very unusual period - usual for me in a sense, but it was pretty much dark brown and black blood all the way through from day 1 to day 5 which I don't think is usual.
I was on the bus going to work yesterday and I started to get chest pains. Remembering my nan had angina not so long ago and we have a family history of heart disease I started to panic but I'm thinking it could be anaemia? I did start to get breathless but I managed to get my breath back ok within a few minutes. On saying it being anaemia I am very pale and fair skinned, giving strangers the impression that I look ill.
Over the course of last night, I have also started to develop a congested feeling in my throat yet when I clear my throat there's no mucus which would signal a cold. I've also had my voice going hoarse as if I've lost it a little and I've got pains in the front of my neck and glands at the sides. No fever or runny/blocked nose, just the throat problem, which makes it even less likely in my opinion for it to be a cold or virus.
I've also had fizzy feelings in my legs which my doctor originally put down to Raynaud's, but since the weather has been much milder the Raynaud's attacks have resolved yet I still get the fizziness!
Should I speak to my doctor about this? I know I'm currently having my thyroid monitored every six months and I'm not due back for another blood test until the start of August, but I'm worried that I'm getting more and more symptoms. Any ideas anyone?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
