3 weeks ago I ended up with a visit to primary care as I started weeing blood, less than 2 hours after it started my urine sample looked like it came straight from the vein! Out of hours Doctor sent it off, a week later saw my GP and there was no bacteria but when I showed him the a picture of the sample his jaw dropped and has referred me to have my kidneys and bladder scanned (appointment next week)
However, the day after my thyroid was very sore and swollen and my throat was very inflamed and I've started coughing up gunk again.
Last week I had a very rough night where I was freezing cold, ended up with winter and summer duvet on my bed, severe stabbing pain on my back, right hand side below ribs and very painful knee joints, which I took Codeine for. Since then my throat has become worse and I'm now losing my voice...
This is on top of other issues, fatigue etc.
Bloods taken at the end of June showed
TSH 2.257 (0.34-5.60)
free T4 10.2 (8-18)
As these are 'within normal range' my GP won't run further tests
Serum B12 165 (>140) - i was supplementing so up from 147 2 weeks prior
Serum folate 5.4 ug/L (>4)
Serum ferritin 41 ug/L (11-200)
Serum Potassium 3.8 mmol/L (3.5-5.3) [was 3.4 in may]
Serum creatine 73 umol/L (45-84) [was 86 in may]
Is there a link between the kidneys and tonsillitis and Hashimoto's? My Gp won't run further Thyroid tests, even with family history, and I'm thinking about getting them done privately as I'm starting to get very worried/scared now.
