“normal” blood work from the start?

Question

“normal” blood work from the start?

I was just diagnosed this week- after a scan and uptake exam. My tell me it was enlarged (over the last 5 yrs), and order blood work….the results were always “normal” and I was sent on my way. My gyno said it is possible to have “normal” blood work and have thyroid problems, which is why he sent me to have the scan and uptake. I was so happy that this came back “abnormal” because I have had so many symptoms for years now, and I am only 27. I guess my question is- does anyone else out there have Hashimoto’s with “normal” blood work from the start?thyroid is enlarged when the doctor (my gyno, believe it or not) felt it. However, all of my blood work is “normal.” I have had 3-4 doctors

  1. Anne- bloodwork with in normal ranges can still make you feel “abnormal”. And I have found that normal ranges vary from Dr to Dr. I was told at the beginning that my thyroid was enlarged but my levels were normal so there was nothing to worry about. It wasn’t until I was trying to have a baby and went to a fertility specialist that I was properly diagnosed. I usually feel best when tsh is around 1.5. I just had a result with it 5.5 (still considered normal at my current Dr) and I felt awful!! You can keep track of how you feel and what your levels are, that way if you switch doctors you always know what you want to be at to feel you best. Good luck!

  2. Ohhh yesss! Normal blood work, with a mass the size of Denmark!!!!! Now I am dealing with Burning Mouth Syndrome and Rosacea, asthma. I am so tired, dragging all the time. My weight has increased, I feel like a blimp, with a swollen throat!!!! I am constantly choking on my food, with close calls of see you on the other side!!!Whew!!! But I have learned to live with it!!! Oh yhea, anxiety has set in!!!! Why I ask the Lord!!!!

  4. Frances- the doc will not put you on meds?

  5. No meds for the thyroid, but B12 fro the Burning Mouth Snydrome, cremes for teh rosacea and arbuterol for the asthma. But not one thing has been down for the mass. With all the technologhy we have now, I figured something we have been down!!! I have been like this since 2001!!!!! it has taken a toll on me…..
