Here I am again this time with a swollen lump in the middle of my chest which I have worked out to be my thymus. But now I'm panicking as the "C" word keeps coming up when I google swollen thymus gland.
At my last endo visit, I was starting to swell in my ankles. I mentioned this to her and she suggested the inflammation was down to food intolerances, I disagreed. However she reduced my T4 to 100 from 125 based on a suppressed TSH (even though my T4 was low in range) but she did raise my T3 from 10 to 20. I did post my results at the time of my last blood test.
5 weeks later I'm feeling soooooooooo fed up with this roller coaster journey of hypothyroidism that seems to have gone on for years.
I'm clearly under medicated, my hair is falling out again, the swelling in my feet and ankles is dreadful, my face is puffy, my airways feel as though they are restricted, I'm wheezing. My eyesight is blurry, I'm saying the wrong words in my sentences. I am however feeling more awake in the mornings.
I'm off for yet another blood test at 6 weeks and will then go off for another endo appt. I'm very worried that my TSH will be low in range, T4 & T3 in range and she won't change medication. Not sure I can cope anymore with this swelling. I am also very worried about the swelling in the centre of my chest. Can anyone shed any light on this and help put my mind at ease??
