I haven’t posted for a while but recently got some thyroid tests done after a year and a half of no tests. Symptoms are:
Very dry skin
Very tired (falling asleep every evening on sofa)
Generally feeling run down
Face and eyes puffy
Tongue feels enlarged
Some digestive issues (nausea, acid reflux)
Shooting pains on r.side of thyroid gland
Both tests are fasting and first thing am although second test I had a cup of sweet tea before and 5 mins on the cross trainer to get my circulation going. I used different testing companies as well.
TSH: 1.33 (0.27 to 4.2)
FT4: 12.8 (12 to 22)
FT3: 3.91 (3.1 to 6.8)
11 Nov (same ranges)
Several years ago I was tested on NHS for antibodies and TPO was 248 iu/ml and TgAb was 1,200 iu/ml ! Also slightly raised serum thyroglobulin.
I have a multinodular thyroid gland as well.
My real question is do you think the GP would
Take these results and my symptoms seriously ? I think my FTFs are really not normal (and combined with my symptoms…..! )
I am on no drugs or vitamins whatsoever that could impact my results (only Vit D and C). My Vit D is always over 100 and folate and B12 are always good (in the past).
Many thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions!
