Back in November my cycle became really off beat, 3 weeks, 2 weeks, then weekly. I was tired. My head was foggy. Moody. I'm unsure if my bowels were normal or not because to me it was the norm. When I went to the Dr they did a test and my TSH levels came back within normal range, 2.97, so they did nothing but a med to help my cycle jump back to normal. Over the next several months I still didn't feel right. One Dr said follicular cysts and it's normal, and another said nothing was wrong with me. I had put on 30 pounds despite diet and exercise (4 x a week at least). I went to a nutrionist, and they were stumped too. During this time another Dr told me I was fat and constipated and if I lost 10% body fat everything would go back to normal. I am too heavy but not generally a big girl. I decided to go to a weight loss clinic, 7 months later, for some help in losing weight since my PCM wasn't helping me find out what was going on. They did a blood test before anything and say my TSH levels were 8.94 and started me on meds. I sent the lab results to my PCM and he doesn't think I should have been started on meds. I am awaiting a follow up with him at the moment.
But now that you have my story, what stage do you feel the symptoms of your thyroid levels change? Is that considered a drastic change? Did the rise in my TSH cause my cyst issue or the other way around?
There's no known family history of Thyroid diseases. I have done all sorts of research on anything and wveruthing, but I have no answers either way. Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated.
