Hi I am new here.
In February I was admitted to hospital as I collapsed at home . I had a tonic clonic seizure in a&e and was admitted to intensive care , in a coma for 12 days with encephalitis following MRI ( swelling of the brain )TPO antibodies >1300 ..... Tsh was 0.4 , free T4 was 17.2 . Free T3 was 3.1. Low sodium levels 112. they treated me for suspected autoimmune encephalitis and discharged home on large dose of steroids, anti seizure Meds. I have suffered badly with side effects from all the medication including , insomnia, anxiety and at times suicidal thoughts . My consultant is now saying that the test for NMBA R antibodies was negative, and after seeing her yesterday she is re testing for , TPO antibodies , Casper 2 , LGit and NMDA. R antibodies as well as TSH & free T4 but that her overall advice was to refer me to psychiatry re anxiety !!!!! I'm worried that now all the tests will be negative and I will be left with a psychiatric referral and yet another medication added . Any advise please . Hashimotos on Levothyroxine since 2012 .
