Hi, I am a 42 year old women, with three children. I previously posted on a bit about my medical history : (20 years ago I was diagnosed with M.E now been told I have CFS and Fibromyalgia, recently been very tierd,sore and stiff with bad headaches and rashes and also been diagnosed with raynauds disease & roscea) Kindly I was replied to on this forum and advised to find out my blood test results and post them on. I am picking up a full copy on Tuesdaybut was given the following which I do not have units or ranges for but was advised that myTSH was normal and my free t4 normal, but had antibodies present (anti thyroid peroxidase). Apparently no free t3 results. Results as follows:
TSH 4.0 (at present i have no ranges will try to acquire from doc.)
FREE TS4 12 & no FREE TS3 was taken or least recorded.
ANTI-THYROID PEROXIDASE - 124.1 (Dont really know what that indicates or if this is high?) GP said out of normal range!
My GP stated that the antibodies meant that I had to have an annual thyroid check up but other than that had no bearing on my health or any of my current symptoms. I have been feeling really awfull recently for last 2 months and am now unable to continute with my university course so really just desperatly seeking some answers for myself and my family who have been up and down with me for last 20 years. My husband and parents have been a contsant support and really a lot of the time I would struggle without their help. Can anyone advise regarding my results. Thankyou.
