Hi there, I don't know if I will be notice on this but if anyone would take the chance to read what I have to say about my thyroid issue I would be so grateful.
I will try and make this short.
Back in 2011 my thyroid was tested and I was told I was borderline hypothyroid but I prescribed anti depressants instead of addressing a possible thyroid issue.
This doctor had a discussion with other doctors but they decided not to treat my thyroid and to give me anti depressants instead.
Different practice 2013-2015
Borderline hypothyroid but prescribed iron tablets, vitamin B12 to see how they go and then treat for thyroid after.
*thyroid antibodies detected
I moved to a different city so my doctors changed so in July 2015 my
*thyroid antibodies detected HIGH*
September 2015- started experiencing hyperthyroid symptoms
*loosing weight but eating more
*very thin hair
*extreme anxiety, palpitations
Feb/ March 2016
Hypothyroid symptoms began
*slow thinking etc
*thinning of hair
In June time my liver ALT and AST where raised so much I was tested for various form of hepatitis and other diseases. All came back negative and I have been reffered to a liver specialist . I mentioned the possibility of it being autoimmune hepatitis which can happen when hashimotos is not diagnosed but he shot me down saying my TSH was too normal but to get it tested again in a months time.
Currently my neck is in a lot of pain and it gets very swollen every day especially after I eat. I really don't know what to do because the doctors I am with now think I am deluded and are trying to blame all of my symptoms on my mood. I know my body and I know something isn't right.
If anyone can help me or even just to talk about this I would really love that.
I have included a picture of my
TSH results over the past year.
