Hi, i was wondering if anyone could help me? i had a thyroid ultra sound scan and was told i have benign nodules and that the thyroid is coarse in echotexture. I have now had my antibodies test results which came back negative -
thyroid peroxid Ab 42iu/ml (60 - 100 iu/ml)
serum cortisol 324 nmol/L (138 - 635) taken at 9.30 am
TSH 3.7 (0.27 - 4.2)
i asked for a T3 and T4 test but the lab refused to do this as the TSH was in range. The GP also went into a long explanation about how T3 is converted to T4 in the body so there is no need to have a T3 test !!!
Basically the GP says i dont need any treatment, but i feel so unwell. i have a sensation of tingling throughout my body but especially in my feet. This is very painful at night. i also feel like i have been running and am breathless, have a stitch sensation in my side and terrible stomach acid and flashing lights in my eyes. i basically feel like i have electricity running throughout my body. Feeling so low and don't know how to get help.
Has anyone got any suggestions?
