After I had my son last June, I followed up with my OB who discovered I had two goiters in my throat indicating thyroid issues. Sure enough I had blood work done and my thyroid levels were high meaning a hyperactive thyroid. They were concern that I might have graves disease and every symptom to graves disease I had. Thank God the goiters were benign. Well after a recheck this past March and again this May my thyroid levels were fine. Right where they should be. However still does not explain a lot of weird symptoms I am having which indicates a problem with my thyroid. Well just had a physical through my regular doctor and just got a call that my thyroid is now real low. Indicating Hypothyroid. May 20 at my OB I just had blood work done and it showed it was fine, June 5th have more blood work done and it is now low. What is going on? I am real confused and concerned. I am also 15 weeks pregnant right now. From what I am reading, going untreated with thyroid issues can cause complications with the pregnancy. Now I am real worried sitting here on a Friday afternoon waiting to hear from my doctor beginning next week. I can't wait over the weekend not knowing if everything is ok. According to the nurse that called she said my levels were real low.
