I'm not sure what is going on with me. I've been trying to figure it out for so long now that I'm starting to wonder if it is all in my head.
I've been having symptoms that I guess could be related to a thyroid dysfunction. The biggest of all is tiredness/fatigue. My cycles are all over the place, I'm depressed and moody, my joints ache on and off (especially hips and knees), I seem to be losing an awful lot of hair (eyelashes,eyebrows,pubic and on my head), my feet and hands either get incredibly hot or incredibly cold.
I went to the doctor and the mistake I made was to open with " I feel like I have PMS all month long" She pretty much decided that I have depression. I told her my symptoms but I could see she was not listening. So when I went back for the blood tests results I took hubby with me and he got the same feeling as me...she has already decided that I am depressed and all I need is antidepressants.
She told me my blood results are all fine but when I explained I have suffered with polycystic ovaries in the past and had to be on growth hormone as a child because I stopped growing she told me she would send me for an ultrasound to check my ovaries and give me another blood test to check my prolactin (at least I think that is what she said she was testing).
Anyway some of the results are as follows...maybe someone can shed some light
TSH 1.40 mu/L ( 0.35-5.5)
T4 16.4 pmol/L (10.0-19.8)
LH 13.2 (1.3-8.4)
FSH: 11 (2.9-8.4)
Possibly was around ovulation when I had blood taken...I say possibly cause I am never sure these days!
So I guess I'm not hypothyroid. Maybe she is right and I'm just depressed.
