Looking for some help, and I’ll try not to make this too long lol. So I have seen 3 different doctors in regards to seeing if I am hyperthyroid/have a thyroid issue. I have a lot of symptoms that have come out of nowhere in the last year. Loosing weight, out of control eye problems (red, swollen, itchy, gritty, dry scales all around eyes), dry skin in general, dry brittle hair and nails, hair thinning, my menstral cycle is not regular, periods of exhaustion etc etc. One Doctor did my TSH blood test, it came back .88 with the normal range being from .4 to 5.5. This doctor told me my TSH was in “normal range” so I was fine. I later asked the Doctor to test my T4, this result was 10.1 with the normal range being from 5.5 to 10.2. Even though I was .1 away from being “too high”, the doctor said I was fine and in normal range. I have been trying to get to the bottom of what is happening with my body for a year now with no help. Any doctor I see always does one blood test and as long as it comes back “normal” they say I am fine. I feel like no one wants to get to the bottom of what’s going on. I have another appointment scheduled with a highly recommended doctor so hopefully I will get some answers. But the reason for my post is I am curious if anyone has similar blood work results? My thoughts were that I am so close to the “not normal” that there might be an issue going on with the thyroid. I am no expert, just curious if anyone had any similar experiences or some guidance in different tests etc to try next. Thank you in advanced and I apologize for the length of this.
