I was diagnosed underactive thyroid in January and went for my second set of blood tests on Tuesday. I'm on 50 mcg of levo and i still feel knackered but i can't sleep properly!
My results are
TFT 13.3 (10-26)
TSH 5 (0.35-4.5)
Folate 6.0 (4.6-18.7)
Vit B12 212 (175-900)
I'm waiting for my Vit D3 result to come back. How long should it take the hospital to do the test? All bloods were sent at the same time.
I had a follow up appointment today with my doctor but unfortunately she's off sick so I'm not sure what to make of these results. Im a bit confused, as she's asked for my TSH and TFT to be done again today(Because I didn't know about the blood test today I took my medication as normal) The nurse told me my results were all normal and that I should take my medication on the day of a blood test. Should I just disregard the blood results taken today?
I had an ultrasound on my thyroid yesterday and the consultant said it was very scarred with lots of nodules.(As i've had problems for 3 and a half years swallowing and breathing at times and feeling like I'm swallowing past a rock. The whole right side of my neck hurts, I get loads of sore throats and my right gland behind my ear swells up and hurts. Is this normal?). He called my old doctor an idiot for telling me it was all in my head! He told me it was definitely autoimmune thyroiditus. Is this Hasimotos? and is the ultrasound just to back up the diagnosis? The medication doesn't seem to be helping with the uncomfortableness around my throat.
Thanks to all the wonderful people on here who have really helped and sorry I've got so many questions!
