Kind of new to all this really. Started to feel unwell with various symptoms after the birth of my now 10 month old son. My neck was really tender to touch under my windpipe, i was exhausted, palpitations etc, etc. My GP took some bloods and as there was a strong family history of thyroid issues tested my antibodies too. My results came back testing positive for antibodies and that my bloods were slightly hyper, she referred me to the endocrinologist. Saw the endocrinologist who took more bloods and pretty much said they'd just watch and wait and see what happens and to see her again in 8 weeks. 2 weeks later she wrote to say my bloods came back that i was hypo and to start levothyroxine. I was a little reluctant to start the meds due to palpitations, so held off and held off. Fast forward to 4 weeks ago, my heart started to race and skip beats, i felt anxious, legs were like jelly, loss of appetite, passing urine more frequently and not able to sleep, i just felt awful. Saw my GP again who took more bloods and they came back being within normal range and positive still for antibodies. I actually feel worse now than i did when i was hypo. My mum, grandma and sister all have thyroid issues, they were all Hyper and had Radioactive iodine treatment to kill them off. I still feel super anxious, heart racing (resting pulse around 100) and my heart is skipping beats and i'm going to the loo a lot. I've been checked out by a cardiologist in the past and all looks good from their point of view. I'm feeling really low today, i have 2 young children and I just want to feel well. Does it sound to you guys that this is all thyroid related? I'm seeing my GP on Friday but as my numbers are normal again no one is interested. I have an appointment with endo in June. Sorry for the long ramble, i'm really feeling so low about this all.
