A year ago my GP found my thyroid slightly enlarged (can't see it), and the endo doc ran the TPO test with the above results. He dismissed me saying I had Thyroiditis and to get my TSH levels checked yearly. In the last 6 months I have been feeling fatigued, depressed and irritable, have periods out of whack, etc. My voice is also hoarse sometimes (could be from reflux, which was diagnosed at the same time as the TPO test). When my GP ran the TSH blood test last month she said it came back "normal", but I don't know the numbers (should've asked).
What does this TPO antibody test result mean? My mom has been hypothyroid for 25 years, and I'm sure I'm on my way there. Part of me wishes they would treat this to even me out - I don't feel like myself but the docs say it's all OK... ? My kids and hubby aren't thinking I'm OK (guilt, guilt...)
