You have got to be kidding me...that is insane. Your TSH is outside the normal range, even outside the outdated range that has a higher upper limit! The next step ANY doctor should be doing is testing you for Hashi's antibodies. There is NO reason for them to refuse that test. I don't even know what to say...I'm simply baffled as to why they wouldn't test for that since your levels are CLEARLY abnormal. At your next appt, with what I'm hoping is a sane person, ask them to test TPOab (thyroid peroxidase antibody) and TGab (thyroglobulin antibody). It is completely standard procedure to test these after a TSH result that is higher than 5.5, and really should be tested for if your TSH is higher than 3. I mean, you're not asking for anything crazy here! I'm so sorry you're having to deal this.

I am so sorry they are not listening to you! Did they retest your TSH and test for Hashi's antibodies?? Even the dumbest doctors should be willing to test those. I had to go to a new doctor a couple years ago that would finally listen to me. My insurance doesn't cover him so I have to pay out of pocket. It's like $250 per appointment, but it is worth it to me to finally feel good. Plus he works with me - he'll mail me prescriptions for bloodwork so I don't have to pay him to see him just to get that, and I can email him questions. I can give you the website where I found him if you want, and maybe you can find a good doc in your area.

Its so hard to find anyone that understands  or to talk to about this it really stinks
I get scared cause i feel like something is wrong and for the longest time the docs said i had anxiety then I ended up in er with a tach of 200+ I was scared and ended up having two ablations since then i had to see a neuro cause of my headaches and sparkles that i see these came out of the blue and when i had my mri they said brain looked good but my eeg i looked not so good  said i had spiking on my left temporal lobe. What i don't get is how you can feel so good then out of the blue for no reason you feel so unreall
anyways thank you

Did they retest your TSH? If your TSH is still high, your body is saying it needs more thyroid hormone. If you have Hashi's it will only get worse without medication. Also, it looks like they didn't test your Free T3 and Free T4. They also need to test to see if you have the Hashi's antibodies. I know they said your TSH wasn't that high, but even a little bit high can make a HUGE difference, depending on the person. I remember your TSH was something like 6.9, right? Well I did not feel good until mine was down to 0.4 - near the bottom of the range. And the most up to date range now for TSH is 0.3-3.0. I swear, half the frustration in all of this is trying to get doctors to LISTEN to you and realize that you DON'T feel normal, and that something is WRONG.

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Have you noticed any improvement yet since starting the levothyroxine? I hope you start feeling better soon! I have been there, I know it s*cks, but it will get better!

You're welcome. I definitely know how you feel. It took the doctors 3 years to find out what was wrong with me, and it was finally my mom who told them to test my thyroid levels! And yeah, it is confusing since Hashi's can cause both hypo and hyper type symptoms since it makes you swing back and forth between the two. I hope you feel better quickly!
