Ok so I had a thyroid scan 2013 after having a thyroid flare and it showed I had a multi nodular thyroid and many cysts/nodules (16 areas in total but on the previuos scan there were only 2 in 2006) and at the same time as my 2013 flare/increased nodules it showed my
TgAb;'s were 610 (ref range 1-20)
Tg were 15.5 should be below <0.1
I was given a diagnosis of Hashimotos (I have had slightly raised Ab's for years and was put on thyroid meds in 2006)
Anyway I have been having terrible thyroid pain and keep going very hyper so knew I was in a flare so have had the antibodies repeated (very high still) and the thyroid scan repeated and my normal ultrasound doctor was off so I had another guy specialising in thyroid. He said that the nodules have not changed, that my thyroid is not inflamed (but i know it is) and that the nodules are not consistant with Hashimotos or graves and that the antibodies are irrelevant.
I am so confused as when my thyroid hurts/inflamed and I go extremely Hyper my antibodies also go up but he is saying its not hashimotos or graves???
I feel like I have razor blades in my thyroid gland, I know my throid or nodules are inflamed but he says its the same as last scan - he was really awkward, nothing like my normal ultrasound doc
I am so confused as I know its my thyroid is flaring but he dismissed that and my Hashimotos diagnosis
any input please
