I am a 26 year old female and in December 2013 I was diagnosed with a thyroid cyst. My thyroid results were all in the normal range. I had a hemi-thyroidectomy in February 2014. After looking at the cyst it ended up being a para-thyroid cyst. 1 month after the op my thyroid results were in normal range. 3 months after, I felt awful, taking naps in the middle of the day etc. TSH was 6.0. Dr wasn't going to do anything and tested for other things, but in the end I was put on 50mcg of thyroxine. I felt worse and then better after a few months so thought nothing of it.
Now I am feeling ok, but still tired and achey. The normal sort of symptoms. It's not as bad as it was but I am wondering if this is normal or if I should feel like I can run a marathon. My latest results were TSH 2.76. That's the only result the Dr would give me. Should I go back and ask for more tests? I have read that TSH should be less than 2. Should I ask for my dosage to be increased. Are there any risk factors to increasing the dosage?
Any advice would be great. Thank you in advance to your replies.
