I would like some advice please. I have been suffering from all the listed thyroid symptoms for many years and have had various blood tests. All of the tests have come back normal ( I never saw the results) However a scan 8 years ago revealed 2 nodules. I had a scan 4 years ago (requested by me) to check on them and as they had not grown and a blood test came back normal there was no further investigation. However last week I insisted on a full T3 T4 TSH test ( I realise now from comments on this site I had never had this full test) as I feel fobbed off and continue to suffer from the following:
Intolerance to cold
Feeling tired all the time
Loss of sex drive
Weight gain despite dieting
Loss of eyebrow hair
Aching muscles and twitching
Pale and dry skin
Early menopause at 37
I also have developed a hoarseness when speaking and a feeling of something in my throat when eating.
My doctor left a note with my last blood test stating thyroid normal but as he found my thyroid enlarged after examining my throat at my last appointment he would follow this up later. He has now gone on holiday for two weeks!
My results were TSH 1.2 miu/L (0.35-5.0)
T4 level 13.7 pmo1/L (9.0-19.0)
T3 level 3.7 pmo1/L (2.9-6.1)
I am on no medication although I was diagnosed with osteopaenia a number of years ago and take D3.
Apologies for very long post. This is really getting me down.Would appreciate your thoughts.
