Hi thanks for letting me join. I had a call from my gynae today re my constant heavy and irregular and painful periods. My periods also make me dizzy and off balance and very tired. She did some thyroid bloods and I have had these results come back.
TSH 10.2 (0.2 - 4.2)
FT4 8.3 (12 - 22)
FT3 3.1 (3.1 - 6.8)
She says they strongly suggest hypothyroidism and has asked GP to urgently prescribe me thyroid medication. How long will I notice a difference in my symptoms?
Also my gynae thinks I have autoimmune problems since I have been tested positive for a few autoimmune diseases. Also getting dizzy and lightheaded standing after sitting. She is considering possible Addison's disease as well. Voice goes hoarse sometimes and 3 thyroid ultrasounds out of 4 have confirmed enlargement.
Do I need to ask gynae or GP for anything else please?
