I'm trying to get answers because I'm not getting them from my doctor. First of all, I have an extensive family history of thyroid problems (my mom, aunt, and grandmother). I'm 31 myself but over the last 2 years or so, I just feel like I'm falling apart. A year and a half ago I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. A year ago, I started getting severe muscle spasms in my upper back, neck, and shoulders. I've tried chiropractors, PT, and massage; and nothing has completely gotten rid of them, so I've been suffering for the last year in pain. Then this summer I started getting migraine headaches which I have never had in my life and have no family history whatsoever of them. I always feel like I'm tired all the time and have a history of depression/anxiety.
However, my doctor has done TSH's over the years and they've always been "normal". I'm in the process of getting copies of all my labs from the last 5 years, but I do have some of them over the last 10 years.
May 2001 - TSH was 3.79
October 2003 - dropped to 1.82
January 2008 - 4.96
October 2008 - dropped to 2.81
I've had it tested since, but I don't have the records yet. I know they still do the 0.5 to 5.5 normal range though. Of course, just from those 4 labs, I looks like my TSH likes to fluctuate. I've never had antibody tests done or anything.
i just want to know if I should be seeing an endocrinologist or not. I just don't think at age 31 I should feel like I'm falling apart like this. It's just confusing though because my levels have never been "above normal".
