Well, in a recent test, conducted only a two weeks after the first one, it showed that my MICROSOMAL TPOab WAS 53. It was supposed to be below 35. Surprisingly, my TSH had dropped from 8.2 to 2.39, which is within the normal range, that too in just two weeks. NORMETANEPHRINE was just a bit high... it was 206, when it was supposed to be below 148. METANEPHRINE was normal.
My HEART RATE is usually between 90 and a 100, but I have these spikes, when it goes up to 135, and I feel lightheaded, dizzy, and start sweating, and later get cold hands and feet. After an hour or two, my HEART RATE stabilizes again. This happens about ONCE in 10 DAYS.
I've been having vague aches and pains, and stomach issues now and then. Well, a four fold increase in the normetanephrine and metanephrine is indicative of a pheochromocytoma. But, mine is not even double the maximum, so that's good.
TSH 3.12, REF. RANGE is 0.3-4.00

Had iron-deficiency anemia because I was a poor eater. With better diet and iron supplements, which I don't take any more, my hemoglobin is normal for the past 2-3 months.
Dad's side of family had thyroid issues.
