Hi, I hope someone can help me...
2 months ago I was diagnosed with HYPERthyroidism which was picked up in a routine blood test for anaemia (which i don't have) the diagnosis was given in Spain where I live the majority of the year (I am from the UK) my Spanish isn't great but he definately said hyper and mentioned that i may lose weight.
I am back in the UK for a bit and went for a 2nd blood test, the doctor here tells me it is HYPOthyroidism! so now I am really confused! can it fluctuate? I had researched HYPER online and had made some dietry changes and had researched supplements, but now I don't know what to do.
I return to Spain next week and I feel I have no answers, I have so many questions and I really wanted answers to them before I go back to Spain as my Spanish is ok but I am not fluent and many of the doctors there do not speak English.
Is there a thyroid organisation with a helpline I can call? I tried to get answers from my doctor but he said he wasn't much of an expert in this field and seemed to be too rushed to answer my questions.
I would really appreciate some more help, I feel so uninformed! I can tell you that thankfully so far I have no notable symptoms, I feel just fine but obviously want to prevent things from getting worse.
My biggest thanks in advance.
