I have recently been found to have elevated Anti TPO antibodies at 41kIU/L (<34) and a high TSH at 4.6 (0.27-4.2).
FT4 is at 15.6 (12-22). I have been taking Levo at 125mcg per day.
Whilst my neck looks fine, I'm having more trouble swallowing than before and it's been distressing me somewhat as I'm always the last to finish a meal, I've had a few choking fits and that I take double the time to do so. I feel over the neck and the thyroid area is sticking out more. I've even had my boyfriend compare mine to his and he's also said that mine is more stuck out - and he's thinner than me!
Whilst it isn't exactly swelling outwards it's still causing problems swallowing. I'm currently out of town so access to my GP is a no go for the week as I don't return home until the 23rd. Would the local chemist be able to help? Nearest hospital is 10 miles away.
