Have posted thyroid results previously.
Been short of breath for 18 months and last 4 months, feeling of suffocation. Feel constantly like I've been running for a bus, struggling to get full breath, muscles don't want to know and sensation in throat (lactic acid?) Since virus last month, now can't stand or walk for long. Not depressed as such, still enjoy family time and seeing friends and look forward to things. Trying to enjoy the moment.
Thyroid tests themselves show thyroid functioning ok which has been confirmed by consultant. Have TPO abs of 365 (>34 positive for autoimmune thyroiditis), other symptoms of dry skin, irritability, brain fog and losing eyelashes plus family history of under active thyroid. TSH at highest was 4.95. Was 3.86 beginning of last month. Also have raised inflammatory markers.
So much information on Thyroid UK site and here which states TPOs means Hashimoto's but dismissed by both consultant and GP.
Have been under a lot of stress in last 2 years (voluntary redundancy, redundancy, bereavement, probate, studying, dodgy builder).
Could symptoms be stress related, still Hashimoto's or a metabolic disorder that I've never heard of? Would genetic testing help?
If I was a highland cow, they would have put me down by now!
