Hi does anyone know if sub accute and sub clinical hypothyroidism are the same thing? I've had a recent blood test, after being diagnosed hypothyroid 2014. I'm on 125 Levo a day. I've just had a baby four months ago, when I was on 150mcg.
I've been symptomatic last few weeks, awful brain fog is back full throttle. Hair falling out, fatigue (but was putting that down to new baby exhaustion)also awful palps which had gone when I was optimally medicated. I've been under a lot of stress lately, the baby caught meningitis and we were hospitalised for 6 weeks and now my husband has also been very ill. I don't know if this is contributing or is unrealated. I need to be in good nick, holding down 2 jobs and 3 kids, plus being hubbys carer
I've had this pain in the last 2 weeks. Started right under my ear and radiated right around my jaw. So I was thinking tooth/ear/ etc but last couple of days it's moved away from the ear and jaw and is more around the soft tissue and lower windpipe or where I i imagine my thyroid is. Can't feel a nodule or inflammation,
My GP will literally only test TSH which came back at 1.8 I've read on thyroid UK these symptoms are often down to sub accute thyroiditis but my notes say hypothyroid. That's it. I've had anti body tests which didn't meet the minimum for hashi.
Anyone else had these symptoms and can shed any light??
