First some history:
Since summer 2004 felt tired (extreme jetlag), being a bit down, extremely grumphy, stressed out, high bloodpressure (going on for a while), always freezing toes and fingers, pain in muscles and joints.
I went to a scubadiving doctor to get approved for scubadiving, when he pointed out my high bloodpressure.
I then decided to go to my GP to check that out, plus the problem with being so tired.
He then ordered blood samples and echo of my thyroid.
In november he took these tests:
BSE (infection in blood) 33 < 1 - 20 >
Gamma-gt (liver function) 49 < 1 - 33 >
TSH it was about 2,6 < 0,25 - 5,6 >
Nothing else was taken of interesst...
In december the echo showed signs of a thyrioditis.
I went back to my doc in january, but my doc was sick. Anyways, they took more blood:
BSE 39 < 1 - 20 >
B12 108 < 150 - 800 >
TSH was within normal < 0,25 - 5,6 >
Because of the echo and me still not feeling assured of this, the doc took more blood (got the results this monday):
BSE 33 < 1 - 20 >
TSH 1,80 < 0,25 - 5,6 >
FT4 12,5 < 10 - 23 >
Anti-TG and Anti-TPO was not ready yet.
Today I called my doctor assistant, and she told me that the anti-tests were finished.
They wanted me to come back, because the Anti-TPO was high.
So, monday I go back to the doc to discuss this.
So, fighting now for 3 months to get the right blood taken. And it shows that both my B12 level and the Anti-TPO is working against my health.
Besides that I always shows sign on having an infection, even if I feel good that day. And the liver test doesnt make me all too happy either.
Anyways, a big thanks to everyone here who has kept my spirits and hopes up! And for all the information that took me as far as taking the right blood samples
I will let you all know how the doc appointment on monday goes!
ps. A question to you all, do you also have problems with having a cold or the flu every now and then? I seem to catch a cold or similar every two weeks or so, and Im getting a bit tired of feeling like this...
