| | Does an MRI show the thyroid?
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about 7 years ago. My dosage has been consistant at 75mcg. After a horrible summer of fatigue, diarrhea, numbness and tingling, memory problems, etc, I had a blood workup. My TSH was at 12 and my synthroid increased to 100mcg. That was last week. Since then I have also developed a "full feeling" in my throat, raspy voice at times, dry mouth, and even worse fatigue. I know it takes weeks for the levels to build in my body but I am scheduled for an MRI of my neck next week to check for a pinched nerve (because of the numbness and tingling). I wonder if the MRI will show the thyroid gland.
I am scheduled for a repeat blood work up in 6 weeks. In addition to the thyroid, my SED rate levels were high at 34 which indicates inflammation somewhere in my body. I wonder if this could also be my thyroid?
At this rate, I just want to feel better. I can't get through a taebo tape without collapsing with exhaustion. I need to work out but can't...
