tbh-summerkites asked: Hi my name is Joanna! I recently went to the doctor because I've been having chest pain. They took my blood for testing and today they informed me that I have high levels of hormones in my thyroid. I didn't really understand why or how I came to have it. But I'm still trying to understand what it is. I'm having an ultrasound in a week to actually see how severe it could be. I'm not sure if I actually have hyperthyroidism but if I can get some feedback or advice, that'd be great! Thank you.
Sorry for the lateness with the answer! How did the ultrasound go? It should’ve helped your doctor see what is up with your thyroid.
As for those high levels of hormones, you should really take the results to your doctor or better, to an endocrinologist. There are 3 main hormones that regulate the thyroid, even though the THS is the one that is most looked at to understand what kind of problem your thyroid has.
It’s hard to tell if you have hyperthyroidism or not, but let us know if there is any news and we will gladly talk to you again!
