According to my GP, my latest blood results show I am taking too much thyroxine. He wanted me to lower the dose, I said no. There is also a note on my file from Endo saying not to change the dose (it took us forever to find a dose I could function on!)
Results are TSH <0.03mu/L (range 0.35-5.5)
free T4 26.8pmol/L (range 10.3-22.7)
free T3 7.2pmol/L (range3.5-6.5)
The 2 lots of bloods last year showed similar results.
He says it shows hyper, which I said I have no hyper symptoms and still feel hypo (my diagnosis is Hashimotos with multinodular goitre). We had a bit of a row when I told him that he was just going by numbers, he hadn't asked me how I feel. I also may have told him that they didn't know what my "normal" range was!
I had an MRI last Sept for suspected MS, and it also showed up what the radiographer said was empty sellar, but the neurologist has since said is an enlarged pituitary. Today I asked for a referral back to my Endo to get it all looked at and see if the pituitary issue was affecting the thyroid, and the GP refused me a referral!!!! I'm fuming!!
Having a quick Google, it seems I also have quite a few symptoms of Cushings (but I know they happen with other conditions too, most of them thyroid related) but it would stack up with a pituitary problem. The Google page I read also suggested my results indicate hyper, but if that's the case, why do I still feel so bad all the time?!
Sorry for the rant. Thanks for any ideas or advice!
