Do I have a thyroid disorder

Hi guys I am back hoping for guidance. As some of you know, for the past 3 months I have had migratory bone/joint pain that shoots around my body. At the onset of the pain, I started to get extreme joint cracking as well. Now I am getting little muscle twitches all over my body. I have also been feeling run down


I have had a bone scan, MRI blood work-all okay

I had my calcium checked-it was fine. I had my THS checked it was fine.

What other blood tests should I be getting in order to dedect a thyroid disorder?

Any thoughts on what could be wrong?

Hi

MANY of us here have been told our results were fine...MANY times! If you have copies of the tests you've had done and can list them here, with the results and the ranges (which will be in brackets next to the test result) we'll be able to possibly answer your question. Just having had the TSH tested to establish whether or not you have thyroid disease isnt enough though. You need FT3 & FT4 at the very least and ideally antibodies too.

Re: Do I have a thyroid disorder

Thanks so much. My dr never tested my PTH but told me my calcium would be off if I had an issue. I read however calcium levels can change week to week. I have a lot of symptoms of parathyroid---GERD (for over a yr), Flucuation in weight (not by a lot only by 6 pds), fatigue, brain fog, extreme migratotry bone/joint pain (has been going on three months--usually shooting pains),lower back painm,buzzing feet, EXTREME joint cracking (going on 3 months) and now little muscle twitches everywhere.



My TSH was 2.313 Range is .3500-5.500
Calcuim 9.4
T4 1.59 Range is .61-1.76

Re: Do I have a thyroid disorder

I would find a dr to keep a track on your pth and calcium. Have you had a thyroid ultrasound?

Re: Do I have a thyroid disorder

No I have not had a thyroid ultra sound. Is their radiation in that? I am going to get the PTH today and another calcium draw. If I had an issue with my PT would it have shown up in my TSH?
