I had my specialist appointment today at the hospital for the first time in 18-24 months and yet again i'm hearing the same thing i usually get from my doctor, that being that he doesn't know if i now have Hashimoto's, Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism. I explained i have symptoms of all 3 and he basically didn't know what to say to that except to do yet more blood tests. I have had loads of blood tests but my doctor and specialist can never agree on the diagnosis.
I was originally diagnosed with hyper about 12-13 years ago but in the last 5 years or so my thyroid seems to go in remission by itself without medication but then starts up every now and again. I don't feel ill with it and i'm not in pain but i've been this way for so long i don't even know if i am ill but feel "fine" because i'm used to it (If that makes sense?), I do have the tiredness and insomnia along with getting easily irritated and every now and again i do lose lots of full strands of hair but that's about it. I did get the "brain fog" around November last year along with bad tremors, mood swings etc but that went on it's own after a couple of weeks and that was the worst i've ever had it. My eating is all over the place too since November.
I want to try for a baby through Insemination but how am i supposed to try when i can't get diagnosed properly to treat myself enough to improve my chances of conceiving and having a healthy and safe pregnancy?
There has been talks in the past about having surgery or RAI but i have always tried to stay away from both but i'm starting to feel like both are better than what's happening now. At least i'll know i'll go hypo and can be treated for that without the constant guessing.
Any advice or thoughts please?
