I have hypothyroidism & been back to my GP with the recurring fatigue, back pain around kidneys although I’m sure it’s my adrenals & just the ongoing symptoms that don’t leave but end up learning to manage them until they get to the level I’m at now and struggle to function.
The back pain I have is morning and late at night, 100% not muscular, I feel nauseous mainly on a morning/late evening, byt intermittently throughout the day. when I get out of bed first thing it’s as if I can feel something swollen around my kidney area when I move move forward.
I’ve had bloods done and was hoping some one could explain this se thyroid peroxidase Ab conc result. As far as I’m aware this is the first time I’ve had se thyroid peroxidase tested.
Se thyroid peroxidase Ab conc result 152.9 kU/L range 0-34
Serum tsh result 1.67 range 0.30-4.50
I’m currently taking 75mg of Levo
I’ve found some info suggesting possible Hashimotos but wondered if this is correct and if so, what the treatment options are if any and i just want to be armed for my appt with GP.
I want a Endocrinologist referral but this has been declined so far.
