I have all the symptoms of thyroid problems but my tests come back normal. Saw my gynecologist and she found cysts? Could that be why I feel sluggish?

I have all the symptoms of thyroid problems but my tests come back normal. Saw my gynecologist and she found cysts? Could that be why I feel sluggish?

Definitely!: Most doctors rely on TSH alone to assess thyroid. If you have cysts/nodules...you need a full work-up including ultrasound (if not already done), TSH, free T4, free T3, (liothyronine) Reverse T3, (liothyronine) Thyroglobulin and Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies, SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin), ferritin levels, selenium, and iodine levels. You may have a hidden autoimmune disorder known as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.

Have thyroid problems. Bleeding for 4 days. I am about 3months with child. Is this a sign that I am gona miscarry when I got my med for thyroids (yearly) levels were 22. Didn't no that I was preg. At that time.

It is concerning: Bleeding for 4 days is concerning and should be evaluated by your ob-gyn. A thyroid level of 22 is high and can lead to increased risk of miscarriage but if caught early that may be avoided with medication so see you doctor for further evaluation.

Naughty doctor: Two problems: 1: He should not make you wait so long for an ultrasound scan. Keep bugging him or report him to his boss! Don't be shy - it's your health! 2: If he doesn't feel that your symptoms relate to any hormonal or thyroid issues why isn't he finding out what the problem might be? Please keep informed.
