Thank you for ur reply

I have palpitations really dry coarse hair

I can feel light headed

That’s it really but my heart does go fast

Thank you

Yes you are hyperthyroid caused by Graves as you have the antibodies. The anxiety you feel is a symptom of Graves’ disease. Once you get your levels down that should lessen

Thank you but my gp wasn’t sure she said it is slightly over

There's a few of us on here that are (or previously were) hyperthyroid. I'm afraid quality of care and diagnosis comes down the the dr you have.

You're results aren't dissimilar to mine when I was first diagnosed and I was referred to an endocrinologist straight away - GPs don't usually deal with hyper thyroid and defer to an endo.

Your T3 is more than slightly over, have you had thyroid issues in the past?

Just lost twins in may I knew something was wrong with my thyroid
