Yes, you say that your blood tests came out "normal" but mine were all "normal" when I was diagnosed, too. It is possible to have a thyroid problem and still have "normal" results due to the wide lab ranges that include people with symptoms that aer still considered "normal" I HATE the word "normal whan in reference to lab results. Show us the numbers and we can help you understand a little better where your symptoms may be coming from.
TPO Antibodies being <10 indicates that you have a fairly low or undetectabel antibody count that is considered to be irrelevant, according to the people at the lab. This does not mean you have no antibodies. You could have antibodies, but are currently in remission so that your count is very low, but tomorrow, the count could be higher. It happens.
Post your lab results and their ranges and lets see if we can make sense of this for you.
