I have had mild hypothyroidism which started as a child with cyclical hyper phases. Have a family history of endocrine disorders on both sides of the family. My first TSH test was 4.15 (tested at age 23), my 2nd test was october 2008 (28) TSH 4.45, since december last year I have had my hands swell, developed rhinitis to an extent that I cannot wear my contact lenses, I developed aching and pain in my lower back, for the last two months have not been able to sleep through the night. These are all new things which made me want to retest my TSH and check my adrenal function.
My GP sent me for tests two weeks ago, my ACTH is 7.3 PG/ML which is low but in the normal reference range, my TSH has changed from 4.45 to 2.76 which is now in the normal range, FT4 is 17 also normal and lastly thyroid antimicrosomal Ab is 214.96 which is way out of normal (0-5). I am tired of being tired, tired of not being able to lose weight unless I am hyper, my memory is terrible, my resistance to infection is low, my skin keeps breaking out in pimples and becomes very oily, I have horrible IBS and acid reflux and to top it all off I am always cold, sweat alot when its cold hardly any when its warm.What other tests should I get so that the damn doctor will treat me, this can't be healthy my cholesterol has increased by 1.2 in one week and I have mitral valve prolapse.
NB. I think I may be going into a hyper phase since my heart palpitations are bad and I am hot.
