What causes low TSH level? - Online Doctor Chats
I have been told that I have a low TSH. No further labs have been done on my thyroid. I saw my PCP last month for headaches and she tested me for ESR- with normal results and sent a Lyme test because of cellulitis out of the blue several months ago. My BP was 144/99 and I thought that was why I was getting headaches, but I was prescribed sumatriptan. I went to the dentist to see if maybe I had something wrong with my teeth, but she said that I have good teeth and healthy gums, but significant bone loss in my face without any signs of pockets of infection. She suggested I get my sinuses checked out. I also saw the eye doctors and had some vision loss in my left eye and both eyes for reading. I had a cardiac ablation for AVNRT in December 2011 and was hospitalized for dehydration and low potassium level due to diarrhea this past December. I am a 42 year old female. I am in good health and take no daily medications. My great grandmother had Grave's disease, is it unreasonable to think that maybe all this is related to my thyroid or something else. I am getting frustrated with the daily headaches.
Give me a moment to read your query
I have read your query
ok. I have an apt with my PCP soon. What do you think?
These seem to be isolated episodes
Headache maybe associated with hyperthyroidism
Do you know T3, T4 levels?
T3 and T4 levels are needed to see the thyroid status
Headaches can also be due to the raised BP
Did you get your BP checked again?
BP should be raised on three separate occasions to be prescribed any medicines for it
You can get your BP checked at local pharmacy
ok. That was the answer to my next question.
If your blood pressure remains consistently elevated you will need to be tested for a cause
Do you have any question here?
For daily headaches you may take brufen until you see your doctor again
No. I think I will ask about the T3 & T4 and recheck my BP and take some motrin. Thanks.
