As a result of my doctor seeming unwilling to take all my symptoms (dry hair falling out, pounding heart, tiredness, heat sensitivity, swollen neck, light periods, brain fog/confusion, diarrhoea) as a whole, I had an ECG (results not back yet) for the racing heart and have been referred to the dermatologist for my hair (dr says he doesn't think this will bring up anything... Grr. But I'm going to go anyway). All my other symptoms he kept inferring that he thought it was an disuse like anxiety or depression (it's not, but he doesn't seem to believe me).
My most recent blood tests have all come back normal (I forgot to ask for them printed off as I was so annoyed and frustrated that he had fobbed me off)
My last ones before that were from early September and were TSH 3.1 (0.27-4.20) and free t4 13.1 (12-22).
So now I'm at the point where I'm probably going to do a full thyroid panel privately, if only to rule it out as a possibility. Do you think, based on my symptoms and blood results that this would be a helpful thing to do?
Anyone who has had one done before... Did your gp take the blood? How much did it cost? Which labs did you use? Any information would be helpful.
