Well, I received my test results from the Endo, and there were significant changes. My TSH dropped from 6.88 to 3.407 (.35-5.5) in 2 weeks, so we are convinced I do not have a pituitary tumor, which is great news. I did see a different nurse practitioner, and she did not agree with the 1st one, where the 1st once said anything above 3.0 she would treat. This one said 5.0, so I will be seeing the first one at my appointment in February. The rest of my test results were:
Free T4 1.02 (.71-1.85)
Free T3 2.8 (2.3-4.2)
Sed Rate 19 ( <20)
White Blood Cell count 9.2 (4.4-11.0)
Red Blood Count 5.05 (4.0-5.5)
Thyroglobulin antibody <20 (0-40)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody <10 (0-35)
Both seem to think that it was a case of isolated thryoiditis brought on by stress and possibly adrenal fatigue, and want to retest me in February to make sure its holding stable.
In the meantime, I added a Thyroid supplement to my diet and have noticed a vast difference in how I feel overall and my energy level. So, maybe for now, this will be enough. What do these results tell you guys? She def thinks its not Hashi's, and no tumor, so that is good news I suppose.
When she did the exam at the second appointment, my thyroid was much less tender. She suggested I may be someone that gets thyroiditis when sick or stressed, what do you think?
