I am so stressed out. My TSH went from 4.1 to 4.14 in 2 months, T3 total from 137 to 127, T4 free from 1.4 to 1.2, peroxidase antibodies greater than 1000. I have weight gain at about the rate of about 2lb per week, heart palpations, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing, stressed and depressed, tired, my blood pressure droped from a normal range of 100/65 to a new "normal" of 82/60.
My doctor said that my numbers are in the normal range but sent me to ultrasound at my request. I have been taking 100mcg of synthroid for that 2 months. I haven't got the ultrasound result but saw the note that the sonographer took that said something like "enlarged heterogenity, irregular vascularity on both lopes, etc.."
I have been feeling worst. I am so worried... should I be worried? Should I get another opinion? Has I got worst, or is it stable and it is just all in my head?
thank you, but I won't get the ultrasound result until May 29th. My doctor said my TSH is in a normal range, so I don't really have a thyroid problem and so he will see me in 6 weeks. He only sent me to ultrasound because I insisted. Should I try to arrange an earlier appointment to get the result?
