hi
i think u need not to worry
here i give normal value
TSH levels for children normally start out much higher.
the National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry (NACB) in the United States recommended age-related reference limits starting from about
1.3 to 19 µIU/mL for normal-term infants at birth,
dropping to 0.6–10 µIU/mL at 10 weeks old,
0.4–7.0 µIU/mL at 14 months and
gradually dropping during childhood and puberty to adult levels, 0.4–4.0 µIU/mL..
u can see that u need not to worry TSH level is normal,means all report are normal

I have Hashimoto disease. Just recently I started having all the time my hands are aching and a new syntom has just started yesterday with my left leg tingling and numb and my foot a little. I went to the hospital a few nights ago cause my throat was feeling tight and had diarrhea for a few days and some dizziness they just did basic bloodwork and said I had a UTI which I know I don't have. They stuck me eight times and could not draw blood my veins blew & rolled. I do not know what kind of doctor I should see about this and if I should be immediately concerned.

Hi. I am a 27 year old female who has had ibs-like symptoms for a while, like gas, bloating, intestinal pain and alternating constipation and diarrhea. I also suffer from hashimotos disease, abnormally high stress levels and panic disorder. Lately I have felt the urge to go like 5-6 times daily but seem to be constipated, and will only pass small stools, if any. I feel unable to fully eliminate considering the strong urge to go... Many times instead of actual feces I will pass a blob (or 2) of strange-smelling mucous, ranging from clear to yellowish with brown and sometimes stringy looking matter within. These do not smell or look like feces, but they do smell foul and strange... What is going on with me? Could this be parasite or infection? I am somewhat concerned about colon cancer, since my father s uncle had it, yet I eat a healthy diet which is at least 90% organic.

I am currently awaiting and endoscopy to see whether chest pain I have been experiencing long-term is G.E.R.D or some type of other digestional disorder. I've had pain in my left chest wall area for years, and sometimes my arm becomes very heavy and 'numb'. I get a fair bit of sputum but it is generally quite clear in colour. I've had a heart monitor and am awaiting results as I have been experiencing occassional palpitations. I get quite nauseas fairly regularly and am almost always lethargic. I've also had headaches and a stiff neck a fair bit recently but I'm unsure as to whether this is just due to sleeping position or habits. I had stomach ulcers about 10 years ago. I am now 24 years old and female.

I currently have a pin prick type pain in my rib area, down the left side which I get every now and again, but I'm not sure whether it's related.

Does it sound like the doctor is on the right track by testing me for GERD or barretts esophagus etc? Is there anything else I should be concerned about? Should I be requesting other tests? I've had blood done for Ross River Virus and Glandular fever etc, and have had chest x-rays previously, but not in a couple of years.

Also, my mother has being diagnosed recently with Hashimotos Disease (thyroid)... Is there a chance that this is what is wrong with me, despite our symptoms being different?
