Hi all , so last Sept blood results came back with TPO antibodies 125 (range< 34)
T4 19.03 (12-22)
Thanks to this site , someone indicated that I may have Hashimotos.
Gp did not want to know about TPO
Because of ongoing symtoms ( Joint pain, fluid retention, fatigue, low vit D, high cholesterol, hair loss, weight gain,migraines) Gp referred to rheumy for a series of tests which all returned negative . Lupus, Rheumatoid arthiritis, Vasculitis. Tests did reveal something was going on as RA factor was 240. Rheumatologist has basically dismissed me because they cant find anything wrong apart from RA factor ,Cholesterol ( back to GP to which i get told depression !!! so pushed from pillar to post) I refuse to take antidepressant because I am not depressed , and have given up on GP.

I remain on no medication apart from vit D3, alternating symptoms hot/cold, appetite/no appetite/ constipation/upset stomach, symptoms as above etc etc.
I would love to hear your advice on the following,
Should my TSH have gone so low in Oct ? which GP said was ok and even though it is now 2.28 i'm still experiencing same symptoms apart from eye pain in both eyes that feels like glass if i look away, and a constant fullness in my eyes if that makes sense. (new symptom)
Could I be experiencing hypo and hyper within a matter of weeks because my bodily symptoms vary to the extreme.
If my TPO antibodies have dropped to 30.4 would that mean i would no longer have to worry about them ? Does Hashimotos disappear?
Lastly I have booked a consultation with a Dr Rehman Khan out of sheer desperation, does anyone know of him ? and if so what was your experience, i am terrified of being treated like a hypocondriac and wasting my time and his.
Please advise because i do not know where to turn next.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
