I've been feeling so unwell for a few years now . although my doctor is very kind , he was not worried about my thyroid as he tested me over two years ago and it was normal
i went to see a dermatologist a few weeks ago .... who said unexpectedly .. I think I'm going to ask your Doctor to test your thyroid ... and hey presto ... positive result this morning
in a way I'm glad as I thought I was going insane .
but Im scared to death about the treatment....
my symptoms are :-
excessive sweating ...to the point where I am exhausted after them
they go on all day and several during the night too.
tremor in my hands and (head)
dry itchy skin all over
swollen feet and ankles
dry hair and peeling nails
hair falling out
unable to sleep.... there are more but I hate to boast ! ha
My Dr told me my thyroid was 309 this morning and I'm
worried sick ... it seems excessive to me as I'm told about 5 or 6 is 'normal' ...is this true
he says I have antibodies that are causing my immune system to attack my thyroid ... I just do not understand it all
can anyone help me with advice please
i have to make up my mind whether to have radio iodine or chembizole ?
please help ...
