I haven't posted on here for a while but I feel the need to come back!!
I was diagnosed with a multi nodular goiter 3 years ago (runs in the family) but was always told that my labs were fine (same old story!!). I suffered now with anxiety for almost 12 months. I was admitted to hospital in Jan 06 with a view of a TT but the consultant decided that it wasnt necessary yet and so I was sent home. He told me that there was no way my symptoms could be related to my thyroid as the labs were spot on (yadda yadda yadda!). Anyway I decided to just get on with things and deal with my anxiety the only way I knew how - by accepting it. I still hate it but I get on with life (feeling like ***** most of the time!).
Anyway in Apr this year we emigrated to Australia and as part of the Visa process I had to get my labs done over here. I had them done on on the Friday afternoon and the doc phoned me up the Monday night to tell me that the labs werent normal and that I was Subclinical HyperT. I was bloody furious with my UK Endo at the time but after I spoke to the doc I realised that this meant I just had a lower TSH (0.128) but my T3 and T4 were fine so I should be asymptomatic?! She recommends I see an Endo here asap though for a scan (had that done in Jan in UK!) and to discuss possible treatment. After reading up on the condition online though I've found that I should have asked to get my FreeT3 & FreeT4 tested too not just T3 &T4 (the good thing about living in Oz is that you get to ask what tests you want - because I pay for it at the moment!!)!
Anyway I was just wondering if anyone else here has been diagnosed as Subclinical HyperT with a Multi Nodular Goiter and if so do you have symptoms from it and are you being treated??
Thanks guys - I'm so p!ssed off with having to think about my frigging symptoms all the time - I just want this over!
