Hi this is my first time posting I've been having some minor health issues that seem to resemble hyperthyroidism but just had my result back and TSH was normal. 1.4, whatever that means!!
I've lost a load of weight, have a racing heart (you can literally see my chest pounding sometimes), occasional palpitations, am always really sweaty and feel breathless and exhausted a lot of the time.
I'm assuming that a normal TSH means that if there is something going on it can't be an overactive thyroid. Is there anything else I should ask to be tested? I have had a cortisol test and it was 300 which I think is normal. In a way I was hoping for something conclusive as I don't feel well a lot of the time and was hoping for an easy answer! I'm struggling a bit (especially with my sport, the heart rate thing is offputting lol!) but I feel like I can't keep pestering the GP with non specific problems when my tests are coming back normal. Can I ask for beta blockers? My heart itself is fine - had it looked at when I started getting palpitations.
I am female early 20s. I have a family history of Graves disease. Sorry for the essay!! X
