Re: thyroid shadow snydrome

It seems that this is what many people on here are experiencing. Having so-called "normal" lab results, but having the symptoms of thyroid disease.

Currently, I fall in that category. High normal TSH of 4.541 and low normal FT3 & FT4 levels. I seem to be developing a goiter too because my neck is swollen. Since my labs are "normal" my doc refuses to treat.

I am currently awaiting an appt with a doctor that is knowledgeable in treating this and other hormonal issues since I have low testosterone.

So, find a good doc in your area. You can search for top docs online. Hopefully this will get you started!

Re: thyroid shadow snydrome

I found out my thyroid was borderline low; where most doctors will ignore it. However, with the symptoms I was experiencing, my doctor was wise enough to say that sometimes the numbers don't tell the whole story. I would fall asleep on my chair at my computer at work due to fatigue. I'd go to my car and sleep (with a timer) during my lunch hour. Slept 20 minutes past the timer ringing! I could not lose weight (and still can't), and my hair was falling out more than usual. The thyroid medication helped me feel better within about two weeks. So I say talk to your doctor and make them understand that these symptoms you are having are not "normal" for you. We know ourselves, generally much better than our doctors.
