So I went for an annual check up at the obgyn and they tested my blood (just standard tests like the liver, etc) and to my complete shock they said I had hypothyroidism because my tsh was at 5.4. which seems odd because my free t4 was at 1.3 which I believe is normal.
They wanted to put me on meds right away but I didn't want to just jump into anything, and I don't think an obgyn should be treating a thyroid disorder... if I have one?
I was so shocked about this "diagnosis" because I've had little to no symptoms. Im quite skinny, I exercise all the time, I eat really healthy, I've always had a high metabolism and no thyroid disorders run in my family. Yes I'm tired sometimes, and my hair and skin are dry but I didnt think it had anything to do with a thyroid issue.
I don't know if they're genetic but I don't know how I could possibly just suddenly have this disease out of the blue. Can these things just happen? And do I actually have hypothyroidism? Should I get tested again or see a specialist?
Any advice would be really appreciated. I am just so confused and I don't know what to do.
