I've been getting this weird sensation in my neck, along with the feeling of a lump in my throat it feels like the right side of my neck is swollen but it isn't when I look at it, I can also see what looks like a pulse bumping about an inch below the right ear. Should I see a doctor asap about this or wait for my appointment with the endo next week?
The endo has checked by cortisol with an ACTH test which was normal although I think the cortisol level at 351 nmol/l at 9am in the morning could be higher, (what does everyone else think?)
All thyroid hormone TSH, FT3 etc was normal
TPO - was >1000 (<100)
Active B12 was 94 pmol/l (25.1 - 165)
Folate serum was ug/l (4.6 - 18.7)
Ferritin was 92 ug/l (13 - 150)
Iron was 15.1 umol/l (6.6 - 26)
T.I.B.C was 48 umol/l (41 - 77)
Sodium was 136 mmol/l (135 - 145)
Chloride was 100 mmol/l (98 - 107)
Bicarbonate was 20 mmol/l (22 - 29)
Vitamin D was normal
I've been feeling really bad recently with headaches, lightheadedness along with the tiredness.
I'm going to ask for aldosterone blood test which is another major player with the adrenals and also hormone tests to look for any hormone imbalances, I'm also going to ask for magnesium, iodine, selenium and zinc levels to be checked and request and ultrasound of my neck.
Is there any other test which people recommend I request?
I'm fed up of feeling crap now, just want to get this sorted and feel normal again!!
