HELP! I have all the symptoms of Hyperthyroidism, Fatigue, sweats, hunger/thirst/ breathlessness, itching etc but

have just returned from my GP who had the results of many blood tests including TSH and the a few other Thyroid tests and all were normal. However, im convinced this is what the problem is and I have a family history of Thyroid problems, mother had hers removed, cousins and Aunties. So, my Question is, can the tests be wrong and could I still have it? and if so what other ways are there to test it?

hI Would you like to post your results with the vital ranges? Make sure they have also done FT3 and antibodies. Have you also had a Diabetes test as similar symptoms? Autoimmune and hormonal.B12 + Foliates, vit D and iron/ferritin. Also LFT`s would be useful ( liver function),

Best wishes,



Yup what doctors think is in range aint always in range. I have been 3.4 and 4.1 and 5.5 and felt dreadful....can you put your tsh and free t4 up?


Hi Jackie, im going back to see a different Dr on Friday morning so gonna ask for the results and also I don't think she did do the T3 or T4 as my friend who actually took my bloody for me (as there was a 3 wks wait for my nurse to do it!!) works up the hospital and she said theres not that option on the bloody forms. So will do. I know she said my TSH was about 2.8, bang in the middle of the range... I have been tested for diabetes at the same time as I have that in the family too! that was ok, she said.... and for anemia . thanks x
