Hi, I'm new to this site and would welcome any help on offer!!
I have been feeling unwell for some time and was eventually offered some blood tests. My GP is lovely but admits he knows nothing about thyroid problems.
My results on 5 April
FT3 6.5 pmol/L range 3.8 to 6
FT4 12.2 pmol/L range 7.9 to 20
TSH 0.05 mu/L range 0.34 to 5.6
He said these were 'strange' and asked me to have some tests done after at least 6 weeks.
My results on 29 May
FT3 5.4 pmol/L range 3.8 to 6
FT4 8.8 pmol/L range 7.9 to 20
TSH 0.1 mu/L range 0.34 to 5.6
TPO antibodies 103.3 IU/ml range 0 to 8
Again, the doctor has told me the results are 'strange', he will take advice and get back to me next week.
I have not been diagnosed and have not received any treatment for my thyroid. Hyperthyroidism is common on mum's side of the family so it would make sense if this was the problem, but I have symptoms swinging from hyper to hypo and at 52 I would imagine I am getting a little old to start developing hyperthyroidism.
I am having problems with my eyes - dry, sore, red and keep losing focus. I also have problems with swallowing and I appear to have a slightly swollen thyroid gland.
Any help, advice, ideas or other would be gratefully received.
