    suffering ... need insights into labs

    I suddenly became extremely hoarse w/ aching pains in my thyroid 3 weeks ago. I've had intermittent tenderness and swelling in my thyroid for 3 years along with diagnosed nodules and Hashi's symptoms, but scans and blood work came back normal 10+ times. The swelling and hoarseness have never been this bad.

    Other issues over the last 2 months: daily loss of brows/lashes; sudden onset cystic acne and oily T-zone made worse by the pill; heat intolerance; insomnia and racing thoughts; fatigued all day with more energy at night; lack of appetite, especially with stress; clotty, heavy periods and extreme cramps

    Labs from 1/23 - GP said elevated ABs are a cause for concern...

    TSH 0.59
    TPO ABs: 12 Iu/Ml (their cut off was 9)
    Free T4: 1.2
    T3 Uptake: 32% (cut off 35%)
    T4 Total: 7.3 mcg/dl
    Prolactin: 5.4 ng/ml
    DHEA-S: 499
    Estrogen: 400 (day 20 of my cycle)
    Progesterone: 1.6

    If ANYONE could give me some insights or opinions into this, I'd be truly grateful. I couldn't get an endo appointment until Feb 9, and I'm going mad thinking about all this. Thanks.
