Popped over from the Lupus UK site. Having investigations for suspected Lupus/MCTD/Vasculitis - not all three might I add! The rheumatologist put these on his letter to my GP. Other tests are in the pipeline and I have yet to be given a definite diagnosis. That said, I was also wondering if it is possible to have a thyroid problem along with any of the above? Goodness knows, I don't wish to add to my never ending list of symptoms but, whatever I do have, appears to share some similarities with thyroid disease.
I recently had some bloods taken for thyroid and it noted: 'Satisfactory' and usually, if nothing untoward then 'Normal' is posted above the results. Strangely enough, during my constant visits back and forth for numerous 'imagined' symptoms I have had the words 'borderline' mentioned before regarding my thyroid test results - with no sign of concern for awful symptoms. They have all been attributed to 'my age' or 'depression and anxiety' - I see from reading through many previous posts that it seems that's how most GP's operate with regards to thyroid problems?
I will post my results below:
