Have been feeling "under the weather" for a while and recently had swelling and pains in my upper right abdomen so decided to go see my GP.
He sent me for blood tests as he said it could be caused by several things.
All the tests seemed to be ok except the thyroid ones.
Serum free T4 level 8.5 pmol/L (9.0 - 26.0)
Serum TSH level 24.30 mu/L (0.35 - 6.00)
Also lymphocyte count 4.11 10*9/ L (1.00 - 3.00)
GP said he is no expert when dealing with the thyroid so referred me to an Endo with a request for a thyroid scan.
Endo gave me 75mcg levo for 2 weeks now upped to 150mcg per day,and I have an appointment for scan on saturday!
Kinda worried as all seems so fast,as I only had blood tests mid April -are these results really bad or is my G P just covering all bases?
