you assistance is very appreciated. I have spent 8-months dealing with symptoms and recently, last week, had Thyroid panel blood drawn. Here, are my results below in culmination with other, various lab work, and symptoms I have had and am currently experiencing. Why I am writing on this board, I would like some second opinions, or any sort of information so I can regain my health back. Most importantly, do I have hypothyroidism; hyperthyroidism; hyperparathyroidism, or something of the sorts? PCOS? Is anemia something I should be exploring, as well? Results and symptoms pointing to anything else? Any other test I should be requesting? Again, your help is so appreciated.
