I'm a 47 year old female. I've had hypothyroidism for a few years, which is treated with Levothyroxine. My OBGYN recently confirmed through blood work that I am in full blown menopause. My T4 is in normal range (1.07) and my TSH is normal (2.040). However, my symptoms are getting worse by the day. Extreme fatigue, dry skin, joint pain, blurry vision, brittle nails, anxiety (mind moving really fast, but body extremly tired) and my throat feels like it's stopped up, but there is nothing coming up. I keep trying to clear my throat with coughing to no aval. I have horseness in my voice and although I can swallow, it feels weird. I just feel sick and I've been feeling this way for a while.
The Endocrinologist is having me come in for a sonogram next week and explained my they may need to remove my thyroid.
My question is: are there any items on the labs which indicate if the gland is just enlarged, nodule, goiter or possibly cancer? Or, do I just have to wait for the sonogram?
I obviously don't know how to interpret this data, but my DHEA Sufate is high (273.7) and some of the items on my metaboci panel are high.
Any thoughts? What are the standards for the decision to remove the thyroid.
Thanks in advance for any help.
