Hi I was wandering if anybody can help me please. I have a multinodular goiter which my GP spotted about 6 years ago (none cancerous) but the nodules have increased with time (I have an ultrasound every 2 years). I have found out recently that I am anaemic and have low vitamin D, which I am now on supplements for. My GP says that I have normal T3 (5.2) and T4 (14) and TSH (1.11). But he says that I do have TP0 antibodies 282 iu/ml which it sates on my blood test results that 'this supports a diagnosis of autoimmune thyroid disease, possibly hypothyroid'.
My GP has said that there is nothing wrong with the functioning of my thyroid and has said that it is just enlarged. However I have all the symptoms of an underactive thyroid, cold, weakness, fatigue, thinning hair, rounded face, clotting on periods, bloated stomach, memory loss/muddle.
I was a very energetic person and was very enthusiastic but I have slowed down over the last 18 months. I have had 7 viruses in the last year and I have managed to push through them and carry on working etc but the last one I had to come home from work 4 weeks ago and I can't get back to my usual self, I have no energy and just lie on the settee most of the time. My GP says its anxiety and post viral fatigue / ME. I pushed my GP into referring me to see an endocrine specialist which I will see net week. Can anybody offer me any advice or help me understand what is going on with my thyroid please? many thanks, Jenny
