I am getting very confused because I have had my test results for my thyroid back, I wonder if anyone can help? I have been diagnosed with CFS for a year and a half but my mum suffers with hypothyroidism and all the symptoms are the same as this! I feel so ill but I'm sure it's not CFS.
My doctor would initially only test my TSH and these came back as:
July 2013 - 1.69
July 2014 - 1.7
23rd October 2014 - 0.75
3rd November 2014 - 1.3 (reference range 0.4-4.9).
On 3rd November he also got a 'normal' reading on:
Free T3 - 4.9 (reference range 2.6-5.7)
Free T4 - 15.5 (reference range 9-19)
However, my Thyroid Peroxidase Antibidies came back abnormal at 11 (reference 0-6). I read that this could indicate Hashimotos and with my symptoms this seems right, but my doctor just said to monitor it every three years? Meanwhile I'm still ill and can't work despite being normally an over-worker.
Does anyone have any advice? Is this a sign that my thyroid is not quite right or is it quite normal?
Thank you very much.
