Temporary thyroid problems can occur soon after birth. They do often settle

Try not to worry

Do you have copies of your thyroid test results?

Also helpful to have thyroid antibodies tested, plus vitamin D, folate, ferritin and B12

You are entitled to copies of your own blood test results.


Thanks for your reply will get copy I'm getting them retested again,feel very fatigued and dizzy times. I'm on beta blockers and vitamin d at moment. But constantly feel like my throat is tight and like something stuck so swallowing more. Not due see someone til 12 feb but guess depending on results scan may hear sooner. Just didn't think groiter had symptoms so worried quite large and pain in shoulders chest related. Not knowing and waiting scares me x
