Thyroid's symptoms or not ?

Hi everybody

I hope you're all well

Am unable to tolerate cold even in normal weather my hand fingers goes numb

but mostly my chest feels very stiff  . My GP has checked , nothing's wrong in the chest . He asked me to take a blood test and the results says I am producing high level of hormones .

He has booked for me to go to the Endocrinology to have some more tests wich is next month . My symptoms have been going on for many years and the quality of my daily life is very affected . Fatigue not feeling fresh , sleepless nights , depression

not able to concentrate all of those .

I would appreciate if you could give me your advises,  could this mean that the source of my symptoms be Thyroids ?

 Do you have a copy of your results? Could you get one and post them here? can you remember what your tsh was, and did the dr mention antibodies?


 @ Aspmama  : No when he told me about the results of high hormones level

I wasn't yet aware about the subject so I didn't know what to ask he just told me to wait for my endocrine tests next month

I will make sure to ask for the copy .

Thank you for your response

A month is a long time to wait when you don't know what is wrong. I would speak to him again asap and ask him what hormones he means and get your blood test results. Unfortunately you can't just leave it in the hands of your GP they may not have a clue. I know the tightness in the chest feeling and all the other symptoms you describe. Yes it does sound like thyroid but that is just my opinion. Phone your surgery and get your test results including the ranges and post them on here asap. It's awful being left to feel crap, Good luck, I hope you get the right help soon
