Thought I would say a quick hello with a rather long post!
I broke my ankle in 2016 and when I was in hospital I was diagnosed with toxic Multinodular goitre and told I had hyperthyroidism causing AF. Sent home with Carbimazole with a view to titrate.
Looking back I realise I had symptoms previously but I had put them down to the menopause!
Since then I seem to spiral from one end of the scale with very extreme symptoms to the other end equally extreme, never feeling well and sometimes feeling extremely unwell. And 4 stones heavier!!
Anyway Carbimazole in varying doses has never stabilised things and when I saw the Endo in Jan he started block and replace,20mg Carbimazole twice daily and 100mcg Levo once daily.
5 weeks ago I had extreme hyper symptoms and they reduced Levo dose to 50mcg.
Now I’ve started having hypo symptoms.
After reading the really informative posts on here and the Thyroid UK website I went to the GP yesterday asking for full blood tests but she says that my blood test last week was normal, and antibodies would have been tested in 2016 and they wouldn’t have changed since then.
Last weeks test was
TSH 1.45 (.27 - 4.2)
T4 14.7 (12-22)
Although this was not after fasting, it was late morning and about 4 hours after Carbimazole and Levothyroxine.
(After reading posts on here, I am now taking Levo first thing on it’s own then remaining tablets an hour later).
I’ve ordered Blue Horizon test which should arrive today.
Sorry for the long and rambling post, but can anyone suggest anything else I could/should be doing?
Many thanks. Very best wishes.
