Lyme-Thyroid-What-I don't know what to do

Can someone please answer if you can for me the following questions.

Tick found on neck (not all the way in) came out easy 7-22-07. 11 days later I woke up to burning skin on check and neck pin and needle feeling.

Went to the doctor he said maybe lyme, but your thyroid looks funny. Tested me for thyroid said I need an uptake scan.

Just had that done and here is what it said.

Finding consistent with clinical diagnosis of Toxic Multinodular Goiter.

TSH of 0.017 mU/m1 and free T4 of 1.83 ng/dl.

Other blood tests: Hemoglobin 15.7, HCT 45.3, Absolute Neut 8.5

T4, Free 0.012 and T3 total 2.11

He now tells me he thinks its all thyroid related and not lyme.

Also can a thyroid go this bad within 1.5 months of being bitten by a tick. Plus I have no idea what Toxic Multinodular Goiter means. I have to look that up on the internet.

Thanks you all so much
Julie

Re: Lyme-Thyroid-What-I don't know what to do

Hi Julie. I am sorry you have so much going on.

Thyroid disorders are not uncommon especially among women.

Regarding thryoid tests, I suggest that you have your Free T3, Free T4 (besides the T3 and T4) and thyroid antibodies tested in addition to the normal panel. They are not usually done but are necessary for a comprehensive view. If you need help interpreting your results, let me know. Some people, including myself, have Lyme disease and a thyroid disorder.

Please post the ranges with your results, they can vary by lab.

I will have that done. I see the specialist for my thyroid next week. I will ask for those tests.

THANK you
Julie
