    I have been feeling under the weather for a few years. In 2013 I had a thyroid scan which showed a small nodule. This was investigated and found ,thankfully,to be benign. I also had an antibody test which showed antibodies but they were within range. The nodule slowly reduced in size. Now I have...

    Hey all, It's been a while since I last posted on here. The good news is I'm doing better than I was when I last posted here: http://thyroidboards.com/showthread.php?t=4890&highlight=cp900&page=6 But mentally I still feel sluggish and I'm not 100% me yet. I feel like most days I'm maybe 65%...

    Hello all! Hopefully somebody can help me make some sense of all this. I went to my doc a few weeks ago for really puffy eyes because I thought perhaps I'd developed an allergy. He ran a blood panel and found (and I apologize for not having the exact numbers - I can get them soon) that: TSH...

    I had a very bad reaction to antihistamines but I am currently undiagnosed as having anything wrong with my thyroid. I am hoping for some guidance as to what I can do. My doctor is very unhelpful. I had to push for the antibody tests. She normally does not run them because she considers...
