Hello all Last summer I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Levels last year: TSH 7.9, T4 was in the normal range but keeps dropping within the normal range (can't remember exactly what it was). And they also tested the thyroid peroxidase antibody's which were at 1117 IU/ml.
I was put on Levothyroxine, 50 mcg, 1 tablet daily. My TSH levels dropped to 3.5 in september and I started to feel better but then my well being decreased again, so badly that I really believe that there is something more than seriously wrong with me. Well, blood given, some results are back.. TSH raised again to nearly 9, urea and bilirubin above the normal range and there is not one part of my body not hurting. I have the feeling that my well being decreased since I had the flu last november, which turned bacterial into a bad chest infection.
My throat seams to have gotten bigger as well and little lumps on both sides and swollowing hurts, not badly but it is often uncomfortable but doesn't feel like a throat infection. When I lay down it feels like I get choked. I wonder, what caused the increase in TSH again after already being in the normal range? Any answers would be appreciated, thank you!
