I'm a fifteen year old girl who has been told that she has abnormal thyroid issues through a blood test. I really wasn't told if i had hypo or hyper thyroid problems. I was told by my family doctor that I should just ignore it because it was part of "growing up". This is all happening at the beginning of this year. A few months after that, I did continue to go to the same doctor and was told the same thing (I had these different symptoms so I guess I went back for each because I didn't get told anything): ignore it. Every single day after that, I haven't actually felt like my old healthy self.
I feel nausea very often (almost everyday), I guess I'm constipated because I only go poo every so often (my doctor did do an x-ray on my stomach and told me it had a lot of poop, but that was a few months back), I feel really tired most of the time, Most of the time when I eat, my throat will feel like it's clogged and so I can't swallow, I'll feel cold all of the sudden when others are just fine, When I feel nervous or uncomfortable, I'll start to sweat all of the sudden and i feel nausea, I sometimes can't concentrate and get forgetful too, some other times I'll get really depressed and ask myself " why doesn't this happen to everyone else if it's part of growing up?!".
I did research and found out that you can switch between hypo and hyperthyroidism. I want to go to a doctor and tell him what I feel and to get a
blood test, to see why I feel this way and to get actual answers. But I'm too afraid to ask my parents. Plus, every other time I went to that family doctor, I would just get weird diagnostics like the poop and my stomach or that it's just stress.
Please, someone reply. I guess I want to do something soon because the school years starting soon and I don't wanna miss a lot of school like last year because of my thyroid.
