Thought it would be better to start a new post, because my previous one was a bit misleading (difficult to concentrate sometimes!).
I mentioned that I had bought some Levo, and was going to self medicate, which was probably not going to be a good idea!
I think that I actually confused myself, by placing too much emphasis on my recent weight gain problems!
I took a careful look at all my symptoms, wrote them all down, and it does not fit in with Hypothyroidism! It does fit in with Hyperthyroidism though, EXACTLY?
1.Eyes feeling dry and gritty, watery, blurred vision, red eyes, sensitivity to light, double vision ( I have to use Optrex every morning, and I have to squint when I go outside and my eyes start watering when in the sun). Possible Graves disease?
2.Feeling nervous, anxious, irritable, hyperactive (can't sit still and full of nervous energy).
5.Feeling tired all the time.
6.Sensitivity to heat (I sweat profusely in hot climates, and it takes me a very long time to cool down!).
7.Feeling thirsty all the time.
8.Itchiness (my back is always very itchy).
9.An irregular or unusually fast heart rate (palpitations, ECG shows arrhythmia), and my heart rate is nearly always in the 80-90 range). My personal BP monitor regularly shows arrhythmia.
10. Twitching (my leg muscles constantly twitch (feels like “bubbles passing through my legs?).
11. Warm skin (my girlfriend complains that I have a very hot body)!
Having done a lot of reading today, I notice that TPOAb and TgAB may be important tests for Hyperthyroidism, along with FT4 & TT4. As far as I know, my previous test was only for TSH, T4 & T3.
Question? Does a "normal" result for only TSH, T4 & T3 definitely mean that I do not have Hyperthyroidism?
