After many years of visiting the Drs with the same symptoms anxiety rapid heartbeat, intolerance to heat eyes feeling gritty, i was always told it was anxiety and nothing else medically wrong with me. In fairness to the Drs blood TSH results did not show any thing remarkable up. My thyroid gland enlarged and was very tender at times, i did have a scan with showed multiple nodular gland with a dominant one, nothing was made of this and no further investigations done. Although they did agree to do a yearly blood test to check thyroid function. This continued for several more years same symptons and dominant nodule grew i asked for a second scan which confirmed the dominant nodule was now 5cm and the gland was very inflammed, which led me to have an appointment with an endocrinologist who advised to have a total thyroidectomy re the nodules. Total thyroidectomy done and pretty straight forward although i had to stay an extra night as my gland released excess hormones during the op so hence i was still not made aware that i had Graves disease until my follow up appointment 3 months later. I was started on 125mg levothyroxine but reduced to 100mg of thyroxine after first blood test 3 months after op showed that my TSH was suppressed and T4 had too much free thyroxine in the blood. I was feeling that i was hyper. 3 months later bloods done again
TSH 0.774 MIU/L RANGE 0.27-4.2.
T4 was requested but lab deemed not necessary due to TSH result normal.
All though i do not feel terrible i still feel slightly hyper, palpitations sweating muscle aches..
So my question is the TSH sufficient to say my levels are right?
Or go with my gut feeling and have a full thyroid panel done privately.
