Hi all. I recently visited the doctor after a lot of reading onlline. I discovered that I at some times experience a lot of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Here are the results that I got a copy of to take away.
sample type: SERUM
T4 free: 14 pmol/L 8 - 22
TSH: 1.98 mU/L 0.35 - 4.94
T3 free: 5.73 pmol/L 2.63 - 5.69
What do you all think? The symptoms that I have include; palpitations, some skin dryness, nervousness/anxiety, face/neck/chest flushes (sometimes the hands also for some reason), trouble sleeping, some sleepwalking also, heat intolerance, sweaty feet, hands are a little moist most of the time, have never gained much weight however I eat a lot of food and am almost always hungry. I get the odd twitch in random places at times. I have had most if not all of these symptoms as long as I can remember. Up until my early 20s I was very active, the heat intolerance issue was always there. Face/neck/chest would become very red, radiating extreme heat at times.
I am 25 years old male, 70kg and 6ft 3in tall. My weight has remained at this level since I stopped growing, only ever a little more when more active (muscle).
Any advice appreciated
