Without seeing the actual results and reference ranges for thyroid,liver,kidneys tests no one here can tell you if they are "normal" its a overused and nonsense word from the medics

I understand just scared i am having a blockage. :(


Robin, it's good practice to ask for a printout of blood results. 'Normal' is a very broad range and being at the top and bottom or range are both 'normal' but can make a great difference to how you feel. Ask your GP receptionist for a print out of your recent thyroid, and if done, ferritin, iron, vitamin D, B12 and folate results with the lab reference ranges. If she isn't allowed to give you them ask the practice manager. When you have them post them in a new question with the lab ref ranges and members will advise.

Low cholesterol, BP 98/58, pulse 70 look good and don't indicate heart issues.


hello, I use to get that too.

yes , very scary when it is happening.

In my case, it was the stress and anxiety causing extreme muscle tension.

(Also, hypo thyroid cases tight when stress and worry is added to our condition, the muscles tighten even more.

When I get like that now, I know I need a massage, and every time she starts massaging me there, it is painful, which proves, the muscles have tightened again.

I have learnt over the months, how to massage that area myself now.

Once I have massaged for a few minutes, there is great relief.

Good luck
