Re: Conflicting labs confused
Your tests are Hashimotos positive. Graves is inconclusive with out a positive tsi antibody test or thyroid uptake confirmation. It is possible to have both. I do.. Both antibodies present tends to signal a quick death to your thyroid via a very wild hyperT hypot roller coaster.
Your results are Normal for early stages of Hashimotos. I would fight for an increase in your low level supplementation of your thyroid to cushion the trend for Hashimotos to drive you hypothyroid through the destruction of your thyroid.
You will get hyperT symptoms in conjunction with hypot symptoms. This comes from the spontaneous release of uncontrolled amounts of T4 and T3 when thyroid tissue is destroyed. This will lessen as your quantity of thyroid antibodies die off or the amount of available functional thyroid tissue dies off. It is a gradual annoying ongoing pain in the neck that we have to manage.
I did a happy dance when my thyroid was deemed dead. However I still have to go and get nodules ultrasound evaluated every year. At your stage I was begging for anyone to cut my thyroid out... But my MDs didn't go for unnecessary surgeries... What a shame it would have saved five years of see saw symptoms.
You are not alone. I am so sorry that you're going through this and can only hope things stabilize soon.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
