Does this flu like ache start in one joint and kinda spread all over your body? Starting down one side and around up through the next side? I had something like that in 2003 and it was terrible. They never could figure out what it was and after a year of those "flare ups" of the "spreading dull ache" it did go away on its own. But now, I still am not feeling well, but the attack type pains are gone. All my blood work comes back normal as well. I have researched for 7 years now and I think I have Hashimoto's. I am getting the tests done when my insurance switches to a better one. I also found out recently that I am pre diabetic.
If you distrust your doctor's take on what is normal or he is unwilling to even give you a trial run on a thyroid med to see if you get better, you can check out the Top Doc list on thyroid-info.com
HI, it doesnt travel ...in fact it is not in my joints... just my muscles arms and legs....it is so frustrating, no doctor can give me and answer... ??
I'm not sure but it looks like your levels indicate you do have high antibodies which you can have and still have a normal TSH, but it still means you have thyroid problem. I would go for a second opinion. But please wait for more replies from the more experienced people here they will be able to throw some more light on it for you. I'm not too good on the reference ranges for tests, only those they do here in the UK.
There's a link on my site to check ranges on most blood results. I dunno if this will help but it's www.geocities.com/bunnyofrock
These are according to Cleveland Clinic's standards I think, but don't quote me on that.
I had all normal antiboties and a elevated thyroglobulin. Messed me up bad!!! Just had surgery for 1cm nodule namd a 2.5cm nodule and 90% of my thyroid gald taken too.. The thyroid glad is a a funky lil deal it can do manyhtings to you. I had chest pain. It is gone!! THey took the nodules that were all tangled in my nerves and poof no more chest pain!!! AWAITING pathology but hey things happen for a reasone you just got to fin the reason,,,
Hang in there!
Have you had your vitamin D levels checked? Low Vit D, Ferritin and B12 levels are very common in thyroid disfunction, and the antibodies may be interfering with thyroid function and balance even if you're not clinically hypo yet. Read up on these subjects, because deficiencies in these areas can cause the types of symptoms you describe. I have had terrible joint and muscle pain since we first discovered I was positive for TgAbs almost a year ago. I started supplementing about a month ago with both vit D and ferritin and have had some definite pain relief. I'm not saying that's your answer, but it may be someplace for you to look to see if correcting any deficiencies might help eliminate some of your pain.
I hope you feel better soon!
