What does that mean? I went to my allergy doctor two weeks ago and he noticed that my thyroid "felt full" and recommended I have it checked out. One week later I went to my OB-GYN for a yearly, and mentioned it to her because I see her every three months for my Depo shot and they have a lab there so I figured they could do some blood tests. She said it felt a little enlarged too and said they would do the blood tests there and if anything came back not normal they would refer me to my primary care physician (whom I've never actually been to before
) So now the test results came back today and they say my TSH level is slightly
elevated, they said a normal range is 0.30 to 5.30 (which I've seen different ranges on different web sites online) And mine is a 6.6. It doesn't seem like that is a really big deal, but I don't know much about it so I'm not really sure what is going to happen from here and if it's a big deal or not. I have been unusually tired the past few months, and have has some "depression" issues that I mostly blame on body image, but other than that I don't think I have any other symptoms. I have an appointment on Thursday to see my primary doctor, and to see what he thinks I should do from here.
So anyone know what will happen? What other tests will they run?
