Hello Everyone, I'm new to the forums. I've been researching hyperthyroidism for quiet a while now.
The thing is I'm not sure if i have it or not.
about a year ago I started realizing extreme shedding in my hair, 2 months after that I did a Basic blood test ( I had to pay for it on my own, didn't have insurance then ). So i paid around 130 for a general blood test which had TSH Levels included in the test. My TSH Level turned out to be 1.4, Which fell in the range of being normal. I was convinced but wasn't convinced enough as i was experiencing most of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism ( Hair loss, Frequent Bowl Movements, Hard time sleeping at night, Losing hair on the outer part of eyebrows, Fatigue, and feeling weak.
So with that being said.. I tried not to overthink about the whole situation and let it go. last month i got insurance and decided to go for a doctor's visit. we discussed all my symptoms and he didn't bring up testing my thyroid. So i had to bring it up to him and he said sure we'll test for it.
Tested my thyroid, TSH Levels were 0.81 This time. levels have fallen. my doctor told me it's within range and there is no need to test for T3 and T4 Levels. But The thing is im feeling the symptoms getting worse day by day.
What should i do guys? Should i go to a new doctor and have him test my T3 and T4? Or am i just being really paranoid about the whole thing?
Any advice would help. Thanks guys
