Hi. I was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid 2 years ago. I was successfully taking a course of block and replace therapy medication. The meds worked fantastically and 7 weeks ago my consultant chose to take me off them completely to see how my thyroid reacted. I was opposed to this as I was feeling great but I realise taking me off them was the only way to see if I was cured. My bloods are currently as follows: TSH 1.63 (0.20-6.00) T4 13.5 (10-20) and T3 4.3 (3,50-6.50). So based on the reference range in the brackets that is what the NHS state is as normal I believe. On the whole I have no symptoms other than an underlying anxiety and nervousness that I only ever experienced before I was diagnosed and treated for hyperthyroidism. So if my ranges are considered to be normal why has this returned? I didn't feel nervous about coming off the meds, quite the opposite I was positive. But this feeling is not right. And again I can state that it was a feeling I have only experienced just before being diagnosed. I'm due to see my consultant next Monday but he is often very much of the opinion that if my bloods look good and within range it's unlikely to the thyroid. Can anyone offer some insight on this if poss? Many thanks.
