Hello. I'm really confused about my thyroid and ANA results. I'm 20, female diagnosed with Hashimoto's at age 10 (thanks to mono). Up until a few years ago my ANA, antibodies, TSH, T3, and T4 all indicated Hashimotos then all of a sudden my thyroid tests consistently came back in the "normal range." normal range? Hmmm….Although I've gradually regained some of my energy, I still have to save my strength for stuff like grocery shopping and swimming laps.
My ANA is really weird. From mid- May until mid-June I had unexplained anemia (iron was fine) and upper-right-quadrant pain. So I went to a GI doc who tested my ANA after ruling out GI tract bleeding. ANA was 1:160 fine speckled. The pain turned out to be my gallbladder which was removed 3 weeks ago. RUQ pain is gone and a week ago my CBC, Iron, TSH, T3, T4 were all "normal" and ANA and all antibodies were "Negative" I couldn't get the exact numbers because my doc doesn't let patients get their exact numbers over the phone.
I have no idea what to think now....
