HI all - I have had the symptoms that my thyroid is off for around a year and also have a little lump, like a grain of rice at the front of my neck (is this what everyone has?). I paid for a private test and it came back with:
TSH 2.46 (range 0.27 - 4.2)
FT4 11.7 (range 12.0 - 22.0)
My doctor says that this is normal and has refused to treat the symptoms (unable to lose weight, insomnia, very very fatigued and achey). I have other medical issues like Mast Cell Activation Disorder so the boundaries are blurred I admit. However I also know that many people with MCAS have Hashimoto's so there is that!
I intend to go to see a specialist but they are all miles away - can someone give me an idea if a specialist would actually treat those test results or would I be brushed off for being just below normal range?
Thanks so much for telling me if those results mean anything and also if the tiny lump is significant...all best wishes to you all.
