Hi everyone, I'm new and hoping I'm in the right place!
So it all started with a lump under my jaw. Went to the drop in and advised to make an emergency app with GP.
Various bloods, chest x-ray, ultrasound, referal to endochronologist and referral for a biopsy.
My symptoms are - extreme fatigue
- hair loss
-yellow finger nails
-very dry skin
- night sweats
The findings of the tests are - low t4 ( they went back and found I have had low t4 since 2013 but was never treated,doc seemed concerned by this)
- high TSH
- enlarged lymph nodes
-enlarged thyroid gland
- abnormal thyroid tissue
- clear chest x-ray
The doctor gave me levothyroxin but this caused my lips to turn blue!
So I guess my question is does anyone have ANY idea whats going on with me? I'm so confused and I have 3 children and I'm struggling to cope with the symptoms and stress of not having a clue what is wrong. GP said he doesn't know because I'm showing signs of hypo and hyper? Is that even possible?
Any advice is really appreciated.
Also I have just had an app come through for ENT, will this be my biopsy?
Thankyou so much in advance and I'm sorry if this post isn't relevant.
