Hi team thyroid. I am now on T3 T4 combo and did not feel much improvement after a week, they r also checking out my parathyroid cos of raised calcium in blood! While taking blood nurse noticed large hump on base if neck between shoulder blades. Its a classic sign of cushings symdrom, possible tumour on pituitary!! So today waiting to hear if I need further investigation on a further two endochrine parts as a result of having no thyroid( papillary cancer ) and only ever been given T4 and no T3 to convert it.
Slight goid news is excessive cortisol may be at root of lot of my painful symptoms.
This life threat had made me want to know more about my case which seems cut and dried to me- without any thyroid I cant make T3 so was neverv able to convert T4!! I want to document this medically because this is utter medical negligence and set me up to be very ill. Like a mechanic never putting oil in the engine and telling the driver that the car will be fine just keep putting in petrol. My engine is completely seizing up!!
Medical resources wld be great!
