I wrote a post a while ago concerning confusion with my test results. This is original post:
Hello all. A while ago I was having a lot of issues concentrating, had extreme exhaustion mixed with episodes of being hyper, crazy moods swings and was always hungry. Got my thyroid tested and it all showed hyperthyroid. Went to an endocrinologist who believed I may had Graves Disease. They scheduled a thyroid uptake scan for me. The results on the scan were completely normal. At this time I was feeling a bit better. My doctor seemed confused but said that thyroid problems fluctuate and to just schedule another appointment in a few months. I decided to just go to my regular doctor to get my blood work done since it was cheaper. All my blood work that I have had done was still pointing toward hyper, but the numbers were inches slowly more toward the normal range. The last test I had done about a month ago, all my thyroid tests were normal except for the TSH, which was 0.01. I guess I am just confused, no doctors seem to be able to give me any concrete answer of what that could mean. My mom keeps insisting that it was stress that was making my thyroid all crazy, but I have never heard of that being a cause for thyroid issues. As of right now I feel great, I have gotten on anti depressants to help with anxiety and general depression, which is something I have always had, but seems to have gotten worst with all the thyroid drama. The blood work I had done was the whole shebang, every possible test you can ask for I got. Anyone have any experience with thyroid issues just going away?
I had a lot of good responses, and most a couple people seemed to think that I probably had silent thyroiditis, and things were going back to normal. I had blood work done again, and my TSH is still low, 0.01, so no change. But all my other numbers are still the same. Does anyone have any ideas of what would be causing this? If I did have silent thyroiditis, how long would it take for my TSH to go back to normal? Is there anything that would cause my t3, and t4 to return to normal, but not my TSH? Any information would be great.
