    Thyroid Question

    Hi, everyone! This is my first time posting and I am looking for your opinions!

    I am 26 years old and pretty healthy, however I have had some recent issues.

    For the past two years I have been dealing with muscle/joint pain and fatigue but it I have just dealt with it and never mentioned it to my doctor. Well, for the past 6-8 months I have developed horrible anxiety which I did talk to my doctor about. She took labs and found that my thyroid levels weren't normal. There were as follows: T4= 13.6, T3 uptake= 17, Free Thryoxine= 2.3 (normal), and TSH= 6.23. She referred me to an endocrinologist.

    A month later I finally get an appointment with the endocrinologist. Based on my previous labs, she said I have hypothryoidism... and that made sense! But she wouldn't but me on meds till they took more labs. My second round of lab results were as follows:
    TSH 3.130
    Triiodothyronine,Free,Serum 3.0
    Thyroxine (T4) Free, Direct, 1.34
    Thyrotropin Receptor Ab, Serum 0.88
    Thyroid Stim Immunoglobulin 43 (%)
    Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) Ab 10
    Thyroglobulin Antibody <1.0 (IU/mL)

    ALL NORMAL! So the endocrinologist said nothing is wrong with my thyroid and sent me on my way. As far as my anxiety is concerned, she told me to see a therapist. I told her about the muscle/joint pain and fatigue but she didn't seem to care.. just said nothing's wrong.

    Has anyone else dealt with a situation like this???? Could it be hypothryoidism?? Or am I dealing with something like Lyme disease or fibromyalgia?

    Any thoughts are appreciated
