i was diagnosed with Graves back in 2016 shortly after my dad passed and i was postpartem with my second child. my TSH was undetectable with very high T3&4. i suffered all the classic symptoms of hyperthyroidism. i recovered fairly quickly being on tapazol and my TSH even started to come back at healthy levels on its own. i was happy and doing great, even my endo wanted to take me off meds bc i was taking such miniscule amount daily (0.25mgs) but i decided to stay on this dosage anyway and have been stable for 3 years until now.
I checked mt lab results today and they have not been this bad since i first got disagnosed. TSH undetectable and t3&4 out of control. i wasnt completely surprised as. i started noticing symptoms about a month ago when my skin started to itch, light period during the month of december (and its usually heavy) and major heart palpitations that i could even hear it! i knew something wasnt right. i have my endo appt tmrw so will be letting her know al this.
my last lab was in October and my numbers were perfect then so obviously something happened in between? well, something did. after my last perfect blood work, i discovered my husband who i have 2 small kids with, had an affair and i fell into depression. i nearly quit my job but luckily i didnt. during the past few months my life has been full of doubts and insecurities and admittedly, last month i even skipped my tapazol for almost a week. my husband and i have since started counselling and ive been feeling better so not sure if all this is connected to my poor recent lab work. any thoughts? id appreciate it.
