Last week I found out my GP thinks I have an underactive thyroid. I went to see him due to a large swelling above my right collarbone. Blood test results are
Free T4 11(8-21)
TSH 5.12 (0.35-3.5)
antibody 90.9 (0-34)
Ferritin 7 (23-300)
B12 329 (130-1,100)
Any way the swelling has been up and down, at its worse it presses on my windipe but when reduced is barely noticable. I assume its normal for swelling to fluctuate?
I wouldn't have said I was suffering from any common symptoms before diagnosis but today I feel very strange- lightheaded and my eyes seem to take a while to focus. Thankfully its my day off work.
Tomorrow I am having an USS of my neck, any advice re coping until I start medication and or questions to ask at scan much appreciated.
