    Hi Hung, you have thyroid disease and your antibodies are very high. This means your immune system is attacking your thyroid, likely other organs as well. Between the autoimmune disease and deficiencies, it isn't surprising that you're having body aches.  Several of your other symptoms are known hypothyroid symptoms. You likely have gut problems that are contributing to malabsorption of nutrients. 

    Youll need to do a lot of research on Supplements, diet, and nutrition, as nutrition can go a long way towards you'd thyroid health. You need supplements and an excellent paleo style, gluten free diet. Absolutely no cheating on the gluten- no wheat, no rye, no barley. Wheat is in everything, so you'll need to avoid eating out and prepared/processed foods for a while until you get the hang of glutenfree. You'll also need to eliminate food additives, so cooking your own food is preferable. Thyroid function requires calcium, vitamin D, B, minerals and other nutrients to function properly.

    You may also want to do some research on elimination diets, as this is a more drastic step towards calming your immune system. You'll need to research autoimmune disease and find supplements or other natural ways to support and calm your immune system. Turmeric and chlorophyll are excellent supplements for the immune system.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    I have been trying to find out what is wrong with me for over a year. I was first diagnosed with a small pituitary tumor which I've been told is insignificant but I think not. I was recently found to have a growth in my thyroid which they said was too small to biopsy 6 months ago. Now it's far beyond the size for biopsy. I have had normal TSH levels so I've been told there is no problem. I went to an endo PA who had more tests and found that my thyroglobulin levels are off the chart. I have now had a biopsy and will get the results next week. Unfortunately high levels are not always, but often an indicator of thyroid cancer. I hope the best for both of us.

      Your nodule is bigger than mine, but mine appears to be growing rapidly from .9 cm to now 1.5 cm in a few months. Unfortunately I can't provide any advice as it's been a maze of doctor visits for me with me always being told that my numbers are normal. I too have low vitamin D, I've had very high levels of cortisol which could come from me stressing over not knowing what's wrong with me. I had a bone marrow biopsy in August and that showed extremely low levels of iron in my blood. I have heard that normal levels are not the same for everyone but doctors don't want to look further when your numbers are "normal". We know our bodies and you just have to keep pressing for tests and answers until we get the result that is needed.

      Hello Hung, all the posts here are from people who've had an extremely difficult time after thyroid surgery.. Truthfully, I wouldn't do it under any circumstance.

      Heres the thing, there is NO BIOIDENTICAL THYROID REPLACEMENT,  so very few people have an easy time with thyroid meds.

      That said, I would try taking thyroid medication prior to surgery, because medication can be used to shrink thyroid cysts.  Trying the meds accomplishes two things, it gives you a chance to see how you do with the meds before there no turning back, and you give yourself a chance to avoid surgery. I'm not sure why anyone would believe that you can remove a part of the body without consequences,  you can't. The body needs a thyroid to regulate metabolism.

      is your thyroglobulin high? Or antibodies to thyroglobulin are high? Either way, thyroid disease is autoimmune disease and the thyroid depends on the nutrients you eat to work properly. You can often treat autoimmune disease holistically. You owe it to yourself to have the opportunity to save your thyroid in an effort to avoid a lifetime of medication and monitoring at the very least. Read through the many posts here and see that thyroid removal results are less than ideal.

      Glad to hear you're cancer free. Keep in mind that thyroid disease is autoimmune, so you'll still want to take some preventative measures towards keeping your existing thyroid healthy. 

      I find removal of the thyroid due cysts to be contraindicated. As thyroid cysts form due to the thyroid overworking to try to maintain thyroxin levels. To then remove the thyroid, deprives the body of what it needs most.

      Wishing you a speedy recovery and good health!
