Default Thyroid Troubles

I got my thyroid tests through my chart and apparently the doctor did TSH only. Ok , that's fine . . . I have other thoughts.

But I totally shocked at the "normal' numbers.

TSH 0.27 - 4.20 uIU/mL 0.31

It's within the range, but looks on the hyperthyroid side to me. LOL

I decided not to take the alpha blocker for blood pressure and I feel 100% better. That was Doxazosin . . . LOL they give it to men for an enlarge prostrate. I was having hot flashes and I never had one in my life.

Your TSH looks good.

You mentioned before that you did not have autoimmune thyroiditis before your thyroid surgery. But are you sure? Were you even tested for antibodies? Do you keep copies of all your visits and lab results?

If you did have autoimmune thyroiditis, chances are your some of the symptoms you have been struggling with can be related to an autoimmune flare-up. Your body can not attack your thyroid, so it is on to another body part.

Just something to consider and research.

I don't think doctor tested for autoimmune, because the t3 and t4 at the time, he diagnosed toxic nodular goiter. one of elevated and the other one not. I researched the t3 and t4 values, and came to the same conculsion. anything is possible, but i believe something is going on there now.

I even questions the retina specialist and the opthalmologist and they couldn't tell me I had graves or hasimoto'sl (can't spell) but I know my insides of my eyes were swollen, because the retina specialist was surprised that the swelling was gone. Still they say it was from diabetes.

I don't speak 'thyroid' and am unclear on Doxazosin.

Am I correct in hoping you are making progress in understanding the very complex issues happening in your body?

I hope so.

The only thing I really understand was in January I felt fine, haven't felt fine since they started jacking around with the thyroid.
