Hi everyone. I have just come back from the doctor. Two weeks ago I saw an endo about possible hypothyroidism/hashis and I went to the doctor to get results of MORE blood tests today. My TSH had been steadily rising throughout the year from 2.33 in January to 3.81 in August. My T4 was 12.8 in January and 10.9 in August. I have also had 2 positive antibody tests. In a nutshell, I have practically every symptom associated with UA thyroid from hairs loss to extreme fatigue. The doctor I saw today was really nice. He really listened and seemed to understand. HOWEVER, he did say he will leave the 'thyroid business' to the specialist although he told me that in the test I had done 10 days ago my TSH was 1.8. What's that all about? Even though he said he would leave the 'thyroid business' to the endo, he did say he will give me frequent blood tests between now and February (when I next see the endo) to keep an eye on things. Par for the course so far, as I am used to being passed from pillar to post. But then he said he thinks I might have CFS/ME. I wasn't really expecting that. He said he didn't want to make a diagnosis without my agreement so he has signed me off work for 2 weeks and asked me to read up on it and then go back to discuss further. I really don't know what to think now. Can anyone advise please?
