So this is my first post on here. I've scoured the net for info but what better way than to just ask right?
So I've had very troubling symptoms the last 2 or 3 months. I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about but not sleeping and losing weight like crazy 40lbs in about a month and a half. I constantly feel weak, I sweat profusely, super irratable and have tremor mainly in my right hand but the last week I've had what I can only describe as a goiter because I don't know why else my neck would swell up the way it did and where it did. It seems to last about 12 hours or so and goes away has happened twice now but to make this semi short. My blood test I had done a month ago has my TSH level at 1.11 uiu/mL which is still "normal" but on the lower side. My FT4 is above the normal high though which on my paperwork says 1.7ng/DL and my test came back at 2.01.. I know these numbers are aren't really going to get the Endo's attention but the goiter and everything else how could it not?.... I feel like I'm losing my mind to be honest and would just like to get some feedback. I have 2 friends diagnosed with Graves Disease and when they saw me, my condition and heard the numbers they seemed pretty confident that I'm going to get a Graves Disease DX but after all the things I've read it sounds like my body isn't going to have to literally crash land before they make any important decisions. Currently out of work on temp leave. I just want to feel better. Got an apt with my endocrinologist at 2pm today and just getting nervous. Sick of hitting dead ends... Thank you in advance for any response.
