A bit of background - A few months prior to be diagnosed I was experiencing the following, my hair was falling out, memory loss, brain fog and extreme tiredness. I questioned if I had thyroid issues (my gran has overactive).
My results came back: Free T4 8.2, TSH 35
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was prescribed 50mg Levothyroxine. Since being on this I have felt worse but some things have improved, still experience memory/concentration issues. I went back to the GP due to chest pain, ECG came back fine and doctor ordered more tests, TPO and BNP. I had one great week then all of sudden felt overwhelmed with work whilst at work and locked myself in the bathroom crying. I am now off sick - I have become a recluse, dont want to see anyone or do anything, lost my confidence, lack of appetite. I now have the results back and the doctor says I have graves and just wants to give me anti-depressants.
The results are: T4 14.3, TSH 9.3, Thyroid Peroxide
2615 ku/L <59
Other than feeling hopeless, confused and wanting my life back...does anybody understand the results and why would I still be needing Levo if I have graves!
Thank you in advance
