Ok, basic info. I was diagnosed on 6.6.13 with hypothyroidism, however I have had symptoms going to childhood, some 20 yrs ago. And sought specialist as a child but never had any diagnosis until now. I am 28yrs and have 2 children aged 8 and 3. Both pregancies where deemed low risk and both where born in a midwife led unit with no complications. My son weighed 9lb 3 and my daughter 8lb 3.
My issues now is we where planning on having another baby but my gp has said I would be higher risk and I'm worried I wouldn't be able to go to the midwife led unit....that is we actually manage to have another as I did have diffiuculties conceieving 2nd time which my gp said probably had somthing to do with goin undiagnosed. I'v read a few articles about high risk pregnacies and and possible birth defects which state low birth weight(of which my two where not!) Heart defects and cleft lip ect. It turns out that recently the dentist have said that both kiddies have tooth defects, one has an enamel defficency and the other has a double tooth and they would have occurred inutro if I was every ill or had had a fall(not that I remember these happening-is that because they didn't happen or simply because I can't remember- my memory is awful) Could these linked with me being hypothyroid??
Every where I go, I see signs and sypmtoms. Everything makes sense but am I over thinking ? Does my wrist hurt because it does or because I'm over thinking? Is my son tired beause he may have it or because he jus doesn't want to go to school. He's always tired but never sleepy. My gp said to only worry about him if I feel he isn't thrieving but now I'm noticing things like he's a big boy but eats less than my 3yr old. He also struggles at school
I have a million questions.....
P.s my last results where. TSH 23.76 (0.3.5-5) Free T4 9.6(11-23) I'm on 50mg levothyroxine sodium and nxt blood test due in 3 weeks.
