Hi all, I'm new here. Saw my Rheumatologist yesterday, who gave me my TSH result that my gp did last week and it came in at 1.9. He said it was absolutely fine as it can be 5.5 and still within normal range. Was told that I am worrying needlessly and to accept I have a normal thyroid. I already have an autoimmune disease as in severe form of Rheumatoid arthritis, and my mother, when I was very young had myxoedema and was left undiagnosed for many years, in fact she was sectioned at one time before finally going into a myxoedema coma and only then being diagnosed. My great grandmother and grandfather both had an underactive thyroid. Am I worrying needlessly? is it all in my head? I asked for further tests as in antibodies and was refused and told I may want to think about a depression test!!!
