Re: Questions help ?

It looks like you may be hyperthyroid. The symptoms can cross over between hyper and hypo.
At any rate, it looks like the thyroid is not balanced right for you.

Read the topic here called Information Archive, then ask us whatever, and those with the experience and understanding will share with you.

Try not to worry, and let us know what you find out, please.

[B]Hi Annesia,
I'm sure this is all very confusing for you right now. It was for me too...and I was 39 when my thyroid problem was discovered!

Most likely you've been referred to an Endocrinologist, which is a specialist in the area of thyroid disorders. I would imagine that several more diagnostic tests will be done to aid the Endocrinologist in making a diagnosis of what exactly your problem is.

My experience was that the Endo took additional blood tests and ordered an ultrasound of my thyroid. Later I also had a thyroid uptake and scan done. All of these tests results put together gave the Endo the information he needed to diagnose me with Graves Disease, which is one of several causes of hyperthyroidism.

It appears that you live relatively close to where I am. I am in the northeast Georgia mountains. Gainesville is 55 miles from me. My Endo is in Atlanta
Good luck, try not to worry too much.

Do not post or ask for email address for off-board info.
Doctor names and cities and states may be posted, but no other business information.
Thank you.

Re: Questions help ?

Actually, LOW TSH means hyper. You are indeed hyperthyroid based on both your Thyroxine and TSH results. Being hyperthyroid is a great stress on your body and will often make you fatigued, Commonly you'll have symptoms similar to hypO, because it makes you so exhausted.

Something else that you may see if they can do is an ACTH Stim test. This tests your adrenal glands to see if they are able top make enough cortisol. IF they aren't able to make enough cortisol to help your body deal with the stress of being hyperthyroid, then you will be exhausted AND have low body temps.

At least now you have a diagnosis to go on and there IS treatmetn for hyperthyroidism. Hang in there and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. <p>[This message has been edited by Meep (edited 03-24-2002).]
