I just joined the group as it seems likely I have a thyroid problem. Been feeling unwell since the start of the year - tired, low mood, losing weight, also muscle weakness. After going to my GP, I was referred to rheumatology at local hospital, then to neurology and most recently to oncology. Current thinking is that my muscle wasting is due to Thyroiditis. Ultrasound has showed that thyroid is inflamed. Had two biopsies done, one from inflamed tissue and another from a cyst. I don’t know my most recent thyroid blood test results, just these from June.
Thyroid function test
Serum TSH level 2.88 mu/L [0.35 - 3.5]
Serum free T4 level 12 pmol/L [8.0 - 21.0]
Serum thyroid peroxidase antibody concentration 422.0 ku/L [0.0 - 34.0]
Above high reference limit
I also have high creatine kinase levels of 8000 (normal max is 200) due to muscle breakdown.
Currently waiting for referral to endocrinology and would appreciate any suggestions of questions to ask and tests that I should have.
