I have only had my period 2 times since January and 4 times 2013-2014. I have pain in my pelvic area around the ovaries and below my belly button. Dr found a lump on my thyroid 2.5cm. And a smaller one on the same side. Thyroid function is fine according to blood test results. Can you tell me what could be wrong? I ve started seeing a natural dr (over the phone/mail) but he gave me a thyroid medication. Since I ve started taking them, I ve gained about 10 lbs and have started getting angry pimples. I am 30, have had 2 children (5 & 10 yrs) normal pregnancies and deliveries.

Hi. I just received my test results for Thyroid Function. They are .58 mIU/L for TSH, 13 pmol/L for Free T4 and 4.9 pmol/L for Free T3. Is this normal? I ve been feeling very tired, abnormally old, dry skin, etc. My mother has an underactive thyroid and takes medicine. If you could advise what you think of these results, that would be appreciated. Thanks

am 27,full time student in grad school, no insurance, currently teach pre-k, weight: 144 and height: 5’3.5

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about three years ago (or so) and have been taking 75MCG for about a year. Before the last dose change EVERY time I went to the doctor they upped my medication to dose til I was at the current 75 MCG and my levels had gotten within the correct range. Six months ago I upped my does to 150 MCG frustrated with feeling tired, being forgetful, no weight loss despite eating healthy and exercising three times a week. In February after only losing about 5 pounds I went to a weight loss center where they took my blood (results below) and prescribed me phentermine. Once taking the phentermine I went back to 75 MCG a day and took a phentermin tablet about three times per week. Since February 2nd I have lost 15 pounds but have still had all my hypo symptoms. I am struggling with severe constipation, lack of energy, dry brittle hair, weird very coarse black (they look like pubic hairs) on my scalp, irregular and very light periods and little weight gain. I say little because I work out for atleast 30 min 5 days a week and eat 6 low carb high protein meals/snacks a day keeping my calories under 1200 a day. I am wondering if I am needing to up my dose, if I am hyoerthyroid (google said I could be since my TSH is low but my t3 and t4 are high), if this means I am infertile or if I have something more severe HELP!

P.S. I forget y thyroid medicine alot Have the whole time I have been diagnosed. Told my doctor that each time I got my dose upped and he still upped the dose.

Results (from February 2011):
T4(Thyroxine): 17.3 ug/dl Reference Range: 4.5-12.0 ug/dl

T3 Uptake 37.5% Reference Range: 23-36%

Free Thyroxine Index 6.5 Ref. Range: 1.1-4.4

TSH: 0.048 uIU/mL Reference Range: 0.350-5.500 uIU/mL
