Thyroid Condition- What is up with me?
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.

Medical History-
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.

This is a duplicate of the information you posted on 4/3 and 4/4 on the following thread:  
http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Thyroid-Disorders/Hashimotos--or-what-other-problem-might-this-be/show/1710913#post_7830164

It would be best if you keep all your information in one thread, rather than starting multiple threads with the same content.

Yes, I'm sorry. I posted in a new thread because no one had replied to my original for about 10 days. So I thought it might have been forgotten...

No need to be sorry; we try not to forget/ignore posts.  I posted to your thread and if we keep a conversation going, on the same thread, maybe others would see it and join us, so you might get more than my opinion.

Click the link I posted above (it's in blue), which will take you to your original post and you'll see my response to you; you can respond back to me, there and other members can join the conversation.
