Post TSH Results and Thyroid scan

Still having horrible fatigue, mental fog, twitching, concentration problems and all the earlier stuff. I got my TSH results back today. The dr said mine was 1.268 and that anything between .350-5.50 is normal. She also told me she wants a thyroid scan because she felt a lump and the ultrasound showed thickness on the right side. Any suggestions?

There's more to testing for thyroid problems than just TSH. It is good that your doctor is doing a scan as a followup on the thyroid swelling. Despite your "normal" TSH, it definitely sounds like SOMETHING is going on.

It might ber a good idea to Check Free T3, Free T4, TPO Antibodies, and Thyroglobulin antibodies as well, and this is something you should likely discuss with your doctor.
