Puffy too. The results were 8mm/h (0-10). I have been on an nhs site which says the higher the flow the more inflammation... The endo wrote to my GP and said my swelling is due to my thyroid disease but didn't offer a solution. All she said was to make an appointment for a cardio scan to check for heart disease. My test is on Wednesday this week. Not feeling great about it as in nervous. But to be honest if I was on correct medication I would not be suffering from swelling - correct?
