Hi I've just been diagnosed but still unsure quite what I'm dealing with. I've had some symptoms for a long time but told a year ago I measured normal at 2.2 but now I'm 149.58 I think this is hypothyroidism. I've been put on 50mcg levothyroxine and told at 6 weeks I'll have a blood test and look at increasing my meds and test for antibodies. However I'd like the blood test now to see if I have graves or harishamoto. I have an enlarged thyroid so got a throat scan on 23rd it's only took a month! But struggle swallowing so not eating properly as I feel sick all the time. My voice is very hourse and my neck hurts. These are my main concerns as I think it's pressing on my larynx. I have severe fatigue headaches and generally most other symptoms except weight gain which I've actually lost 1/2 stone these last 2 months since I've been particularly ill. I put it down to stress but finally went to the doctors and following a blood test it's been a bit overwhelming. I've also been given an urgent referral to see an endocrinologist consultant. Is there anything else I need to ask for ie tests etc? Isn't advice would be really appreciated as everything I read saying its a chronic illness and I'm worried about what my health will be like in the future thanks
