I have always had symptoms of hypothyroid. I’ve had it checked in the past (I assume the doctor only did the basic labs) and it was normal. In the past week or so, it’s like something has snapped. I have these “spells” where I feel confused, out of my head, sweaty hands and feet, hot and cold flashes, neck stiffness, and full blown anxiety. I’ve not had a sex drive in months. I feel exhausted constantly. It has affected my work life to the point where I’m afraid to even go to work because I might have a “spell”. My new doctor did more in depth lab work, and my T3 uptake is low, T3 is high. Also my LDL cholesterol is high. Everything else is within the normal ranges. Thyroid ultrasound is also normal. Doctor is still sending me to endo, but it’s going to be a week or so. Does this sound like hypothyroidism? I’m terrified the Endo is going to ignore those two labs being off and just say I’m fine.
