Hi I am 26 y.o. female and I have been experiencing an increase in severe headaches that i also feel in my jaw, dizziness throughout most of the day, lymph node swelling in the occipital region of my scalp, hair loss, and fatigue. I went to my doctor and to make a long story shorter after a few visits these were my lab results.
TSH _____H 41.9 ( yes 41 not 4) re-tested 2 days later H 34.8
C-reactive protein ____Negative
Other Labs: CBC, Chem 10 are all WNL
SO basic A&P: TSH stimulates the thyroid to produce thyroid hormones when the thyroid hormone is normal, through a feed back loop you stop producing so much TSH. With this said if there isnt an issue with my thyroid hormones i shouldnt be having these symptoms and i shouldnt have a high TSH but I do. If the issue was with my pituitary gland my symptoms would be much different (hyperthyrodism) but it appears i have high tsh that is not affecting my t4 or t3 either way. so my question is why do i feel so terrible, what could be causing this, and what diagnostics should i ask for next? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!! Thank you
