I'm 28 years old and have felt really ill with a huge number of issues (fatigue, headaches, dizziness, muscle pains etc) throughout basically all of my 20s. The doctors I've seen over the years have basically completely dismissed me as an anxious hypochondriac.
I recently ordered some tests from Blue Horizon, and so far the only results I've got through are my thyroid ones.
The cover letter mentions that my thyroid antibodies result "increases the possibility of your having autoimmune thyroid disease, such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis or Grave's disease".
My next step will be taking this to my GP (who I don't imagine will be happy I've taken this into my own hands), so I wondered if anyone would mind having a look first to see what you think? Does it look like my thyroid could be the root of my problems?
I've added a screenshot of my results.
Thanks so much in advance for any advice!
Thought it might be helpful for you to have a more detailed list of my symptoms:
Feeling exhausted all the time
dizziness/vertigo (every day when I wake up, and also if I exert myself at all, but even if I'm not yet out of breath)
feeling thirsty all the time and always needing a wee (when I go to the loo I never feel like my bladder properly empties so already need a wee before I've even washed my hands)
A weird sort of tingling that will only stop of I touch it, I get this in my knees, arms, scalp, nose and cheeks (not necessarily at the same time)
A loud thumping/fluttering in my ear when I touch my face (this has been happening as long as I can remember, although it's getting steadily worse, and i no longer need to touch my face for the sound)
My hands often go numb and I get pins and needles
I often feel bruised all over, even though nothing has happened to me
In the last couple of years I've had real sleep problems, waking up at 2 or 3 in the morning every night and not getting back to sleep
Painful joints, especially my wrists
I get very bloated, to the point that I look around 8 months pregnant quite often.
