Hi I am not sure where to go and what to do. I will start with a bit of background and see how we go.
About a year and a half ago I got pregnant and I also had a blood cyst come up at the same time in my thyroid. I then miscarried and the cyst disappeared. They then discovered I have 3cm multi nodular goiters in each thyoid after doing a couple of biopsies.
1 ½ years down the track and we have been unable to conceive again I conceived my son after about 4 months of trying. He is now 3) My natropath has been monitoring my thyroid along with my doctor and my tsh levels have dropped from 1.2 to .42 and my thyroid antibodies have increased to be 66 which is slightly above normal. My free t3 and t4 and in the normal but on the low or high end (I am not sure which) My doctor is unconcerned about these results but my natropath is very concerned because they are getting worse.
So my questions is do I trust what my doctor says or do I go and get a second opinion. My main issue with this is we are in a small town and I really love my doctor. Do these sound like normal results or nor so great. I have looked at the symptoms list and I loose a lot of hair, and have cold feet and am tired (but I am a working mum so that does not mean much)
I also since my miscarriage have very painful irregular heavy periods

Thanks for the help ☺
