Thyoid scan - Page 2

post #11 of 15

LOL:  Good luck with everything.

 

I have Hashimotos Thyroiditis myself.  And am hypothyroid as a result.  Wish I didn't have it that's for sure.

 

Best Wishes!~

Thank you!  They aren't quite sure what is going on with me because my TSH is extremely low and that would make your T3 & T4 high which is hyperthyroidism... but my T3 & T4 are low too so the aren't sure what's going on. I just had more blood work done and the Dr is ordering a Thyroid Scan and and Ultrasound.  Might have to have an MRI of the pituitary too but won't know that for a bit. Don't have the normal signs of hyper (such as weight loss).  Just glad the ball is finally rolling to figure out what is going on.

My sister had a rarer type that has both high and low thyroid symptoms. It took them a long time to work out what it was and treat it properly so by the time they did she had developed the neck goitre and almost lost her voice it was very croaky. Took a long time but eventually it went away totally on medication and she doesn't take anything for it now. Can't remember what it was called but try google because sounds like what you are finding with your results.

Will check it out!  Right now she is thinking nodules or a goiter at this point.  Will know more after the tests!  :)
