So following my previous post after Christmas - I thought I'd give you an update .
Just a short reminder - pre Christmas I suddenly had the headache from hell. High temp and heart beat up. Ended up in hospital for 2 days . Initially thought bleed on the brain, ct scan fine, treated as viral meningitis then finally a kidney infection . Suffice to say they had no idea, however, the one thing they did was reduce my thyroxine from 125 to 75 as they said I was now over.
Following a visit to the gp the week after Christmas, she informed me yes it was a large drop but looks like I was over now and see how it goes . No further tests were done at all.
Through sheer frustration I decided to see a private GP , given I was still unwell tired etc . He arranged a the full works blood test, urine and stool . Some results came back the next day . He has referred me to see an endocrinologist in Nottingham as there is lots going on for further advice. He says I have hasimotos - never been told that before .
Is that different to underactive thyroid ?
My results as follows
free thyroxine 18
Free t3 3.7
Total t4 116
Thyroglobulin antibodies 374.3
Thyroxine peroxide antibodies 135.7
Vit d 36
Basically my cholesterol up too - blamed Xmas but I was actually ill and didn't eat
Non ldl 6.4
Any thoughts people.
